MySQL Server Has Gone Away – What Happened & The Solution To That
The MySQL server has gone away (error 2006) has two main causes and solutions:
1- The Server timed out and closed the connection.
TARY checking this “wait timeout” mysql variable in your my.cnf configuration file is large enough.
2- Server dropped an incorrect or too large packet. This happens If mysqld gets a packet that is too large or incorrect, it assumes that something has gone wrong with the client and automatically closes the connection.
Try to increase the maximal packet size limit “max_allowed_packet” in my.cnf file, eg. set max_allowed_packet = 128M, then sudo /etc/init.d/mysql restart. This solution should work for you, if you still have complication visit WordPress support forum for more help.
