Am running drupal on MAMP (on a Macbook Pro using OSX 10.7.3).
Keep getting errors:

Cannot set variable `max_allowed_packet` to `536870912` in your database configuration!
Probably you do not have proper privileges on the database server.

I have created a my.cnf file in the MAMP/Library directory (a copy of my-medium.cnf.  The only change I have made in this is to comment out the line

log-bin=mysql-bin

to avoid multiple error messages like the above.   The max_allowed packet as defined in the file is the default value and not 536870912.

I have disabled the update status module as I understand this can cause this problem.

Can anyone help me to solve it?
