HOW DO I MOVE THE MY.CNF FILE?

Postby RSXHiTMAN » 28. January 2007 01:15

i cant start mysqld or mysql-nt because it gives me system error 1067, it looks for the my.cnf file in c:\my.cnf.

I dont want it to look there, how do i make it look for the file within its own directory instead of c:\my.cnf

i did --remove and then ran the mysql_installservice.bat and it says

the system cannot find the path specified

"sc" is part of the W2k resource kit:
