Which file need to be edited? I couldn’t figure it out of the installation instruction.

grep -r "\[mysqld\]" /etc/

Thanks, it’s /etc/mysql/mariadb.conf.d/50-server.cnf in my case.

Why do they not provide that information at the installation instruction?

Practically, I believe quite some people still use mysql instead of mariadb, not to mention other variation and/or version that use different path and file name.

Reasonably, people doing this level of “hack” should know what they are doing and what they have done. No one will put [mysqld] into /etc/fstab, right?

In this case it is always a good idea to check the manual of the software you want to configure :wink:
