That’s good. I was concerned that you had the same issue with MySQL 5.7 and the implications for RT on Stretch.
Max_allowed_packet does not work with 5.6.29 or 5.6.30 (at least not the Debian packages at those versions).

Nowhere that I found in the docs I was reading did it say you had to add the max_allowed_packet setting under a section called [mysqld] in my.cnf. As soon as I did that, my setting took effect, and the full text setup ran perfectly.

That worked perfectly. You can safely “upgrade” back to your current version after the setup script runs – the fulltext index maintenance script will run fine. If downgrading worked, please update my Debian bug report with the version that did not work for you: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=840780 James
