Ok, I have been trying to restore a 140 MB phpBB database since yesterday with my new DreamHost account to no luck. I'm trying to do it with a program called BigDump.php, as I'm told it was the most straight forward way to upload it.
So, I have FTP'ed the backup SQL to the site, and then run the BigDump.php file only to meet this error:
"MySQL: Got a packet bigger than 'max_allowed_packet' bytes
Stopped on error"
I'm probably missing something very easy that I needed to do first, not sure. Or is there a setting somewhere to increase the 'max_allowed_packets', or is that against the rules?
Thanks in advance.
