    Asked by sauers513 on August 28, 2015 at 11:05 AM


    Someone submitted a form from out in the field today from their iphone, and received the following error:

    Oops! Error on query. 
    Error returned: MySQL server has gone away


    Any ideas?  He had trouble yesterday too. He took about 50+ pictures and only 30 some uploaded onto the form.
