Got a packet bigger than ‘max_allowed_packet’
I have a test site as well as a staging site for the same project. Installing Searchford (search plugin), and indexing the content works fine on the test server (local and different from staging server), but replicating the steps on the staging server (running Plesk) I get this error:
Got error 'PHP message: WordPress database error Got a packet bigger than 'max_allowed_packet' bytes for query INSERT INTO wp_searchford
I found some posts that hinted at increasing the
wait_timeout in the my.cnf, but this hasn’t helped to fix SearchFord’s indexing problem.
Any idea how I can fix this issue and index my content?
