New Mysql installation

Hello community

I recently installed Solaris 10 on a sparc server. I have download and installed so far apache 2.2.22 and phpmyadmin 3.5.1 . Mysql seems to be running on the server . Can someone point me where the configurations are located? Any tips or links that you can share to properly configure the mysql on this production server?

Configuration location has been discussed in this question: "Where is my.cnf in CSWmysql5?". As a general rule, configuration of all programs packaged by OpenCSW is stored in /etc/opt/csw. There's also a corresponding section in the manual: Configuring Services.

I have the mysql running however I still can't find the my.cnf file

I read that OpenCSW provides an example my.cnf file which can be found at: /opt/csw/mysql5/my.cnf Edit this file according to your needs and copy it to one of the above given locations

However I don't have a mysql5 folder on that location /opt/csw

Running this

# mysql --verbose --help


Default options are read from the following files in the given order:
/etc/my.cnf /etc/mysql/my.cnf /etc/opt/csw/my.cnf ~/.my.cnf

The my.cnf file doesn't exist after the installation. You need to create it from scratch. It's not necessary for MySQL to run, you only need to create it if you need to modify anything.

automaciej commented:

One more thing: the /opt/csw/mysql5 directory is not used any more.
