Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.


I was just browsing through the MySQL 5.1 manual, looking for a nice list of configuration directives and their explanation, and there isn't any. Seems weird to me.

Kind regards,

Matthias Vance
