markettwp Posted November 25, 2006 Report Share Posted November 25, 2006 I find that MySQL wants to search the boot drive (usually C:/windows or C:/winnt) to find the my.ini or my.conf files. If I want to boot from a USB flash drive, on a system where the C: drive is blocked for security purposes ( for instance a public library computer system or a thin client which boots from the network server and has no local C: drive...), I would like to have MySQL search the installation volume (such as the flash drive), in addition to or in exchange for the system boot drive. Is this possible? Can it be done without rebuilding the MySQL kernal? I have not found any description of where the .ini or .conf file location can be edited by the administrator. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Uniform Server is said to be "dustless", so how do you avoid leaving the MySQL .ini or .conf files on the system boot drive? Quote UniformServer 5.x, CodeIgniter, Gimp. What else could anyone want? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
