Cause

The default_socket_timeout value is set too low. This is caused by the setting default_socket_timeout . If php doesn’t receive anything from the MySQL database within this period, it assumes it is disconnected and throws the error.

Solution

  2. Depending on the timeout setting increase, the default_socket_timeout variable to the expected longest possible run time in the /etc/platform/<project_name>/php.ini file. It is suggested that you set between 10-15 mins.
  3. Commit it to GIT and redeploy.
