My sister needed help reconnecting her Coppermine database after moving it to a new domain. Seemed easy enough, if the database wasn’t deleted. Her host took $150 to rebuild it and failed. After three days of work, I too am stuck with a “#2006 – MySQL server has gone away” error when trying to import the final chunk of the .sql dump. The folder structures, redirection, tables, users and GUI are all restored, I just can’t populate the database. Argh! Seeing it was a cool app, I installed it on my server too.
