The following error is thrown when trying to import a database dump in PHPMyAdmin:

Got a packet bigger than 'max_allowed_packet' bytes


Communication packet size is greater than the limit configured for MySQL.

For more information about this error, please refer to the MySQL documentation.


Increase the packet limit in MySQL configuration file /etc/my.cnf , e.g. by adding line 'max_allowed_packet = 32M' (limit may vary) and restart mysqld service.
