This question already has an answer here:
i am getting serious error in the production server when i deploy for the first time. Please find the below PDO exception which i am getting.
PDOException: SQLSTATE[HY000]: General error: 2006 MySQL server has gone away in variable_set() (line 977 of /var/www/htdocs/includes/bootstrap.inc).
I am not allowed to increase allowed packet size and wait timeout in the mysql end, because multiple sites are running on the DB and such a way we are not allowed to change php.ini also.
Is there any other solution for this problem I am facing this issue with the client for past one week not it has been very critical for me.
Could anyone please help me out to get ride of this issue? Thanke in advance.
