I have an error log getting created at an amazing pace - I managed to get a look at it (the first time I saw it the log was too big to open) here is the error:
WHERE option_name = 'wpmudev_snapshot' made by do_action_ref_array, call_user_func_array, WPMUDEVSnapshot->snapshot_remote_file_cron_proc, WPMUDEVSnapshot->process_item_remote_files, WPMUDEVSnapshot->load_config
[25-Feb-2013 18:45:06] Coburn Enterprises database error MySQL server has gone away for query SELECT option_value FROM wp_options
Any suggestions? For now I have deactivated the plugin.
