Bugfix: MySql reconnect (in query_with_reconnect) #569

merged 1 commit into from

3 participants


The MySql reconnect in query_with_reconnect is broken. Thus after a longer suspend/resume or server restart, the MySql connection fails with "ERROR: SQL: The MySQL server has gone away".

Function mysql-real-query does not return the error code itself. Instead it only returns 0 (success) or a non zero value (always 1 in 5.5.19) on failiure. To get the actual error code, we have to call mysql_errno on the connection.
