Some of our customers started the report that they see a server error during checkout process, after they fill in their personal details and click on proceed to payment. Their registration details are not captured and I can see the following error in the server logs:
“/home/clients/1d989383ee11099bb2d8468c003d5c0c/.config/apache/www.genevaphotoclub.com/.fpm/php5.external” stderr: PHP message: PHP Warning: Error while sending QUERY packet. PID=4208 in /home/clients/1d989383ee11099bb2d8468c003d5c0c/web/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 2007, referer: https://www.genevaphotoclub.com/events/spc-photo-awards-geneve-ete-19/
I did the test in an incognito window and I don’t see the same issue. So it happens only to some customers.
Any idea how to resolve this?

It’s a dedicated server. I got the following response from my host, hopefully this should solve:
This error is usually caused by the max_allowed_packet mysql directive when it is too low.
We’ve modified it from 16M to 32M. This should solve the problem.
Great, thanks for the confirmation/update 🙂
