Getting SQLSTATE[HY000] error whet trying to upgrade to 3.2.0

I am getting this error:

Update error: SQLSTATE[HY000]: General error: 2006 MySQL server has gone away

when trying to upgrade to 3.2.0 and I have read that it has something to do with the

max_allowed_packet settings. Is that accurate?


There is a FAQ entry about this error:

Thanks Lukas, that’s exactly what I needed to do. Cheers
