I'm using automysqlbackup25 from here --> http://sourceforge.net/projects/automysqlbackup/
The script was working fine for some time, but now I can't get it to run completely at all.
I get this error and the backup drops.
mysqldump: Error 2013: Lost connection to MySQL server during query when dumping table `item_history_table` at row: 642263
This isn't the same place everyday, it seems to be dropping out at differnt places daily.
But it seems if i do a mysqldump just from the command line, it works. It's weird because automysqlbackup uses mysqldump, so it should work.
Any one have any idea what this error is about? Is this a time out issue perhaps? The db is somewhat large at around 2GB.
