A quick one which has been vexing me. I've got a standard XAMPP install on an AWS EC2 instance. Now EC2 is funny because you don't get a lot of storage with it and you have to buy extra storage. This storage gets mounted on the instanced in the /vol/ directory. The idea is that you put all your data in it (its cheaper, faster, and it scales).
I've moved htdocs (easy), but I'm struggling moving the mysql directory. I've been able to phyiscally move /opt/lampp/var/mysql and I've updated all references in my.cnf to point to the new location (the sockets and the innodb stuff) and mysql will start, but nothing can connect.
I've then tried leave both folders where they are - namely /vol/mysql and /opt/lampp/var/mysql and then pointing innodb db to /vol and the sockets in opt. But no success.
Any ideas how to move the mysql directories?!
Thanks/Danke in advance!
