I’m importing 3.5MB csv file into the database. After file uploading completed, the following error came out.
#2006 - MySQL server has gone away
It is because MySQL server drop if there is too large packet. To fix the error follow the steps below.
1. SSH to your VPS / Server
2. Edit my MySQL file. Remember to backup your /etc/my.cnf prior to that.
3. Add or edit max_allowed_packet in the MySQL configuration file
4. Save MySQL configuration file
5. Restart mySQL
service mysql restart
If the error still persist you may try to increase the value & try again.
