MySQL 3172

This error indicates that a table needs to be upgraded before it can be used. It is usually caused by a mismatch between the version of the table and the version of the server.

How It Affects Your App

This error indicates that the table in the application needs to be upgraded to the latest version of MySQL. This can cause the application to malfunction or not work at all. It can also cause data to be lost or corrupted, which can lead to further issues. The application may need to be taken offline until the table is upgraded, which can cause disruption to users.

How To Fix

max_allowed_packet = 16M

4. Restart the MySQL server:

$ sudo service mysql restart
