    I did a search on my website and received my results (that 'no results were found') and at the top of the page, this error message:

    Warning: Error while sending QUERY packet. PID=22319 in /home/-----/public_html/domain.tld/2016/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 1868

    I did another search and received results and no error message, so I did a search for something I knew was not on the website. Again no error message.

    Searching Wordpress forums for this error, I found this reply:
    If on a VPS, you’d update those values in your mysql/maria config files then restart the database service.

    I don't know how to do this. I am new to VPS. My website was just moved to VPS yesterday afternoon.

    Do I need to update my values?

    You should first access your server via the command line as the "root" user using the instructions at:

    SSH Access - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Then, you can follow the steps below to modify your MySQL configuration:
    1. Open the /etc/my.cnf file with your preferred text editor.
    2. Enter a new configuration value or adjust an existing configuration value in the [mysqld] section.
    3. Save the file.
    4. Restart MySQL® with the /scripts/restartsrv_mysql script.
    The specific value to adjust depends on the specific advice you received or the specific error message. This thread is also a good place to start: server stats gathering tool for cPanel Server
