I have MySQL 5.6 installed on Windows 7 64 Bit and I can't seem to get it to read my my.ini file. I've put the file into the base installation directory, the Windows directory and C:\, but it doesn't look like it's being read, even though all paths are listed here:
My my.ini file doesn't do much, I just took the my-default.ini as a base and added
because that default limit of 4MB is bad for BLOBs.
When I start mysql.exe and check the variable I find that it's still at 4MB, even after restarting the server (both via the services menu in the control panel and via mysqld -shutdown + mysqld -startup) and restarting Windows.
I have Windows 7, 64 bit. Can anyone help me, please?
Thanks in advance!
