MySQL server lost connection / system error

I am getting a mySQL server error:

mysqladmin: connect to server at ‘’ failed
error: ‘Lost connection to MySQL server at ‘reading initial communication packet’, system error: 113’

this is thus resulting in my website being only partly served.

mysql server is “barbaro:haarstad”

Any ideas, or is this one of them things that we need to wait for admin?

ok it may be connected to server moves - will wait and see

You might be able to hurry things along a bit by adding a new (temporary) SQL Hostname in your panel now you’re on the new server and changing your config files to connect to the new hostname instead. Untested, but worth a shot :wink:
