I want to have two MySql servers running on the same system (for master-slave replication tests purposes).
To be able to do this I need both servers read different my.cnf files.
As I see at startup MySql tries to read from one of default locations.
How can I specify it own my.cnf location for MySql server?

I am about to use MySql 5.6 under Debian environment.


mysqld_multi is designed to manage several mysqld processes that listen for connections on different Unix socket files and TCP/IP ports. It can start or stop servers, or report their current status.
