I need some assistance changing the port that MySQL is running on.
So, according to http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/option-files.html
MySQL first looks for conf in WINDIR\my.ini, WINDIR\my.cnf ....etc.......
None of these files exist, not even my.ini in the install dir.
Therefore I created my.ini in the install dir... @C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.5\my.ini
The contents of the file is:
I have tried various things with this ini, I used the examples, but when ever I go to services.msc and restart the MySQL55 service after having saved the updated ini, it always freakin starts on the default port 3306
