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.
