Title says it all. I previously had mysql version 5.1 on my CENTOS 6 x86_64 OS.
I attempted to remove mysql 5.1 and replace it with an install of mysql 5.6.
Here is my uninstall process for mysql 5.1:
yum remove mysql yum remove mysql-devel yum remove mysql-client rpm -qa | grep -i mysql rpm -e mysql --nodeps
Here is my install process for mysql 5.6:
I got three rpm's for mysql 5.6.
rpm -ivh on all three rpm's in the order of
server first, then
/usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'pass'
I then went into my webmin admin panel to play around with some mysql settings and it told me my
/etc/my.cnf file was missing. So I went into my server to look for the
my.cnf file and I could not find it in its usual places.
So I attempted to run a
mysqld --verbose --help | grep -A 1 "Default options" and I got three directories that it is searching for a
~/.my.cnf. I checked all three directories but I could not for the life of me find that file.. Now I went to my mysql home directory which is
/var/lib/mysql to find the .cnf file but all I found was
Does anyone have any ideas? Could I just download a my.cnf file and place it in one of those directories?
