This error indicates that the MySQL server is not available. It is usually caused by a connection issue or a server crash.

How It Affects Your App

MySQL 3168 ER_SERVER_ISNT_AVAILABLE indicates that the MySQL server is not available. This can have a significant impact on an application, as it will be unable to access the data stored in the MySQL database.

max_allowed_packet = 16M

4. Restart the MySQL server:

$ sudo service mysql restart

5. Check the error log again to make sure the MySQL 3168 error is gone:

$ tail -f /var/log/mysql/error.log
