Last Modified: 2015-03-08
I am trying to write an app that allows me to drop,create insert.....etc into a mysql database
I have the .sql scripts and I tried this but it gives me an error message "Packets larger than max_allowed_packet are not allowed." how can I fix this?
            string myTestSql = System.IO.File.ReadAllText(filename);

            using (MySqlConnection conn = new MySqlConnection(sqlCon))
                MySqlCommand newCmd = new MySqlCommand(myTestSql, conn);
