Topic: Lost connection to MySQL server - but it works in the console...

Hi;

I've posted this to my ISP's trouble ticket system, but I thought I would ask to see if anybody had any thoughts on this one here.

I get the (dreaded) "Lost connection to MySQL server" message when trying any page that does any kind of database lookup. I can read data from the database through the web-based db client, and I can query model objects through the console. If I change the password in database.yml to an incorrect password, the console can no longer query model objects.

My MySQL server timeout is set to 110 seconds (should be long enough?)

Any other thoughts on how to debug this one?

It turns out to be a problem at their end; they upgraded Rails but didn't upgrade the mysql gem.
