Unable to start mysql server


I’ve made a change in the mysql config, modifying the sort buffer size, as i had a message about it being to small.
Problem is, the mysql server does not want to restart after that !
How can i comme back to default value ?
I suppose there is a config file for that, but i didn’t find it (my.ini form example)…

Can someone help me, i’m stuck bad !



What happens when trying to start MySQL? Do you see an error of some sort, either on the command line or in the logs?


Hi Eric,

I had no error, just not starting but…
Found it !
the file is /etc/mysql/my.cnf

a line had been added by my request :
set-variable = sort_buffer=12M

i deleted the line and the server agreed to start !
