Error: "MySQL server has gone away"

Keep getting the error,
ERR (3): Mysqli prepare error: MySQL server has gone away

I assume this is related to my very slow GoDaddy database connection, but wanted to post anyway, in case it is symptomatic of some other issue.

This is probably some issue with your host.

The server has gone away message happens when you lose your connection to MySQL during the runtime of the script. Since Omeka pages are pretty short-lived, this is a pretty rare error to get.
