Based on this question, the asker wrote:

set-variable = innodb_buffer_pool_size=2M
set-variable = innodb_additional_mem_pool_size=500K
set-variable = innodb_log_buffer_size=500K
set-variable = innodb_thread_concurrency=2
set-variable = innodb_flush_log_at_trx_commit=0

All of the variable has set-variable. I've tested this way on MySQL 5.1 standard install, and it works fine.

But I dont like it that way because it too long.

Lots of other guide including in MySQL website didn't say about using set-variable. Even in MyISAM setting example (MySQL 5.1), it only use thread_concurrency = 10

I've just installed MySQL 5.5 on new server and now is the time for configuration.

So, do MySQL really need set-variable?


MySQL works fine without the set-variable in the my.cnf file
