I just setup Rails on Centos5. I have a remote MySQL 4.1 server.
I am able to successfully connect to MySQL with rails and it works fine
most of the time.
However, I get the following error every once in a while (not always on
the same query):
Mysql::Error: Lost connection to MySQL server during query: SHOW FIELDS
Any idea what might be causing this? There doesn’t appear to be any
packet loss between the 2 servers.
