Running MAMP (not PRO) 2.0.5, MySQL 5.5.9, locally on OS X and I cannot get MySQL to read a my.cnf file.
I've tried throwing it in the following directories with no results:
/Applications/MAMP/conf /Applications/MAMP/Library /Applications/MAMP/db/mysql
On each attempt, I make sure to shutdown the server, move the file and server is then restarted, after which a quick check of
SHOW VARIABLES reveals no effect.
I'm using MAMPs my-small.cnf, renaming as my.cnf before copying over.
Any ideas as to what's going on?
