How To Find MySQL my.cnf File Location

MySQL configuration file (my.cnf) file location depends on operating system or installation method. There is no command available to trace the exact file location on your system. In this tutorial I am giving you some default location’s where my.cnf file can be found.

Moreover if  my.cnf file is available on more than one location, system load each file and override configuration values.

/etc/my.cnf 

/etc/mysql/my.cnf 

$MYSQL_HOME/my.cnf 

[DATADIR]/my.cnf 

~/.my.cnf

That’s all.
