mysql 5.6 ubuntu 15.04 can not find the correct my.cnf file

advertisements

I am attempting to move a mysql db onto an upgraded server with a newer version of ubuntu running (15.04), and after installing LAMP, I went to edit the bind address in the my.cnf file. The below is all I see in /etc/mysql/my.cnf. I added [mysqld] and the bind address = new address but nothing seems to allow my remote client to connect to this db. It is online and the ip address should be correct. What am i missing? Why is this my.cnf so bare?

#
# The MySQL database server configuration file.
#
# You can copy this to one of:
# - "/etc/mysql/my.cnf" to set global options,
# - "~/.my.cnf" to set user-specific options.
#
# One can use all long options that the program supports.
# Run program with --help to get a list of available options and with
# --print-defaults to see which it would actually understand and use.
#
# For explanations see
# http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/server-system-variables.html

#
# * IMPORTANT: Additional settings that can override those from this file!
#   The files must end with '.cnf', otherwise they'll be ignored.

!includedir /etc/mysql/conf.d/
!includedir /etc/mysql/mysql.conf.d/


stupid me, apparently in this version it is the mysqld.cnf under /etc/mysql/mysql.conf.d/. Oh well. Posting this in case anyone else has problems.....
