How to increase max_allowed_packet

Postby sila » 07. March 2007 06:27

Hello, I'm using 1.5.5 version which is works perfectly for me on my winXP..My question is how to increase max_allowed_packet=1M
to max_allowed_packet=ANYTHING

I also notice that we can change it via my.cnf file. But I don't know how to that because most of the instructions are based on Linux command.

Your help is highly appreciated..

:lol:
Regards,

Just open the "my.cnf" in your editor and change the value for "max_allowed_packet".

(BTW: "ANYTHING" is not a allowed value)

Then you have deleted this file or you have no XAMPP.

"my" is the file you are searching for.

I could not edit the 'my' file. It's like a short-cut icons. What text editor to use? I tried both, wordpad and notepad but still could not edit the ;my' file.

Thanks a lot :P

You can use both.

BTW:
"wordpad" is not the best idea, to edit plain text files.
