I have been running XAMPP for years as our intranet php and MySQL server without issues. All running and serving our LAN users only.

After I performed backups and upgraded XAMPP version from (MariaDB 10.1.8 - PHP 5.6.14) to (MariaDB 10.4.13 - PHP 7.3.20), everything connected and looked fine except for the error I received when testing my intranet published Alpha anywhere webapps. I received "Error Code: 2013. Lost connection to MySQL server during query." I have checked the values in my.ini for max_allowed_packet, connect_timeout and wait_timeout but an increase in those values didn't resolve.

Is there another ini file configuration that I need to check or adjust?

AA version 12.3 build 2999
