I am trying to move the location of a mysql database. I tried to follow the instructions here and elsewhere, which say to change the "datadir" directory in "/etc/mysql/my.cnf". My problem is that "/etc/mysql/my.cnf" contains only this:
# For explanations see # http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/server-system-variables.html # # * IMPORTANT: Additional settings that can override those from this file! # The files must end with '.cnf', otherwise they'll be ignored. # !includedir /etc/mysql/conf.d/ !includedir /etc/mysql/mysql.conf.d/
As you can see, there is not a value "datadir".
Any help is much appreciated. I am running Ubuntu 15.04
