I’v stopped using CodeIgniter for 7 months, but I maintaining a product that was developed under CI.
Today I’v got a error saying “MySQL server has gone away” after a long time PHP execution.
I’v managed to solve it by, on the model that was getting me the error, *reconnect* to the database .
Before the *command* i’v added $this->db->reconnect();
$this->db->reconnect(); $this->db->insert('photoGallery', $data); return $this->db->insert_id();
Hope it helps anyone out there.
