Solving the error "Packet too large" in MySQL

Answer:

When you try to insert a very large row of data (e.g. BLOB) into MySQL using a single insert statement, MySQL might give you the error "Packet too large". You might need to adjust the value of max_allowed_packet as needed.

1. Edit the MySQL configurations, e.g. /etc/my.cnf

..
max_allowed_packet=32M
..

Don't forget to restart MySQL to take effect.

# /sbin/service mysqld restart
