I failed my latest attempts to backup my Joomla2.5 website after the following error message from Akeeba:
The backup operation has been halted because an error was detected.
The last error message was:
AEAbstractDump :: Database Error: Unknown system variable 'OPTION' SQL=SET OPTION SQL_BIG_SELECTS=1
I searched parts of this text on Google but didn't work out much: only this forum discussion in polish makes me guess I should comment the code line
$db->setQuery('SET OPTION SQL_BIG_SELECTS=1');
in the file
mysql.php, whose path is given.
Do you agree trying this to solve the problem? Can you explain what caused this error to occur? I would just like to understand a bit more of what happened before handling php files. Thank you.
