I installed percona-server-client-5.6 on Ubuntu; there is no mysql server installed on that same machine.
/etc/mysql/, the only file is
my.cnf. That file contains many sections of options and I am not sure which sections are applicable to the machine with only the client package installed.
I assume the
[client] section of course, but why to the other sections exist at all? Will changing their values affect the mysql server the client connects to?
[client] ... [mysqld_safe] ... [mysqld] ... [mysqldump] ... [mysql] ... [isamchk] ...
