Sql connection errors

I’m getting intermittent errors on my site with the message "2013, “Lost connection to MySQL server at ‘reading authorization packet’, system error: 0”. Through some googling it appears the issue may be a connection timeout variable that is timing out too soon, and that increasing that variable may be the key to solving the problem. Problem is, SQL is not exactly a native language for me. In MySQL i see the variable but no obvious way to change it.

Anyone able to help? If more info needed, just tell me what.

You would have to contact DreamHost support and ask them to increase the connect_timeout in the MySQL server configuration file.
