Ricardo, there can be a lot of reasons why you get this error, most obvious the server timed out and closed the connection. 

You can read more about the issue here: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/gone-away.html

To resolve the issue, you need to wait for sometime and repeat the previous steps. If you run into the same problem again, you need to contact your hosting provider to resolve it by increasing time-out value
