hello all and blessings to you from the holy land.
i have a site, it's kinda large site, a drupal site.
i tried to make a local test site, tried on both php 5.2 and 5.3, tried to switch to regular lamp installation but understood that as an hyper-active middle eastern who likes things "short and fast" i cannot give up xamp at any cost!.
every time i try to upload this sql file i get the error: "got a packet bigger than "max allowed packet" bytes.
-but as the matter affect, the allowed bytes are 64 in both the packet byte fields in the MY.cnf file.
-both post_max_size & upload_max_filesize have been also uploaded to 40 megas (the sql while zipped is only 3M and unzipped = 31M).
-after making this two changes i restarted xampp.
-i also tried from several SQL files (meaning: from several different dates).
-and also tried from the original SQL when unzipped.
i have nothing else to think of and i gotta have your help guys!,
best regards to you!,
