Warning: Error while sending QUERY packet. ... on line 1868

  • Answered
Hi, I'm pretty green when it comes to problems, so would appreciate any help I can get.

I receive the following error when updating my theme (Elegant themes Divi):

Warning: Error while sending QUERY packet. PID=452558 in /home/tracyo5/public_html/backporchbanter.com/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 1868

Line 1868 is $this->result = mysqli_query( $this->dbh, $query );
and is part of the code shown below:

private function _do_query( $query ) {
if ( defined( 'SAVEQUERIES' ) && SAVEQUERIES ) {

if ( ! empty( $this->dbh ) && $this->use_mysqli ) {
$this->result = mysqli_query( $this->dbh, $query );
} elseif ( ! empty( $this->dbh ) ) {
$this->result = mysql_query( $query, $this->dbh );

if ( defined( 'SAVEQUERIES' ) && SAVEQUERIES ) {
$this->queries[] = array( $query, $this->timer_stop(), $this->get_caller() );

What should I do to fix this error when updating the theme?

Thank you!!!
Hello tlonizzie03, Sorry to hear you are getting an error when updating your theme. Unfortunately, the line that the error occurs on does not give much information. The line " $this->result = mysqli_query( $this->dbh, $query ); " is simply an equation. The actual error would occur from the content of the variables. Did the error message happen to display the full query? You may also want to have our Live Support check to see if a 'max packets' error. They can check that for you. Kindest Regards, Scott M
