How we fix MySQL Error 1153 (08s01)?

Recently, one of our customers approached saying that he is getting an error like the one shown below:

MySQL Error 1153 (08s01)

He mentioned that it happens while dumping a MySQL database by importing from one place and exporting the same into another.

So, our Engineers checked in detail and did the following:

1. Initially, we opened /etc/mysql/my.cnf

2. Then we searched the line with the word max_allowed_packet in /etc/mysql/my.cnf.

3. After that, we increase the value of max_allowed_packet accordingly.

4. Finally, we restarted the MySQL service using the command below

service mysql restart

This fixed the error.


Also, we handled a situation where the customer approached us with the same error in CentOS. Our Engineers checked in detail, and they found that the issue is with the large file size.

So, for increasing of max_allowed_packet value we did the steps as shown below:

1. First, we opened /etc/my.cnf

2. Then we entered the commands below under the [mysqld] section.



Note: When changing the value of max_allowed_packet, we should also change the buffer size on the client-side.

Then, we restarted the MySQL service.

Finally, this fixed the error.
