SQL ERROR [ mysql4 ] MySQL server has gone away  SQL SELECT bbcode_id, bbcode_tag, bbcode_helpline FROM phpbb_bbcodes WHERE display_on_posting = 1 ORDER BY bbcode_tag BACKTRACE FILE: includes/db/mysql.php LINE: 158 CALL: dbal->sql_error() FILE: includes/functions_display.php LINE: 820 CALL: dbal_mysql->sql_query() FILE: posting.php LINE: 1338 CALL: display_custom_bbcodes()
I'm having problems with posting large messages, including images from an external host.
When I try to post a message which contains more then about 10 images it takes to long to process the message and then the MySQL server times out.
This usually happens with external images loading from sites like Photobucket and Imageshack, where I think their server takes longer to respond.
An example of a post which I couldn't load;
The images are now placed in the post with a URL, but I actually want them to load between the image tags.
The mysql.connect_timeout on my host is set at: 60
My guess is that phpBB3 isn't able to process the images before the mysql times out. I have no problems with phpbb2 boards which I host on the same server. Is this a new "feature" of phpBB3 where it process the post/images before updating the database?
I tried contacting my host, but it's not possible for them to edit the mysql connection timeout, because this will affect there whole server.
I also tried to ask this question at the dutch phpBB board, but unfortunately no response
Hope someone here can help me out.
