I Am using an external mysql-server to work with akonadi. (using KDE4). Now I could solve all problems with it, but I still have to apply some settings to the "mysql-global.conf"-file of the server. That's what is suggested for example:
# wait 365d before dropping the DB connection (default:8h)
So I tried to change this setting via the mysql console. But it's not reflected anywhere in the /etc/mysql/my.cnf file.
(etc/akonadi/mysql-global.conf seems to have no effect on the mysql-server either!)
My question: Where to put these (or similar) settings to apply them in a way that akonadi won't drop the connection with an external server (globally I guess?)?
