After using the Configuration wizzard here : https://tools.percona.com/wizard
One has the values to put into your my.cnf file
sudo nano /etc/my.cnf
The following values need to be used :
innodb-buffer-pool-size = 24G
datadir = /app/mysql/
I had to make a symlink for : /var/lib/mysql to point to my new drive partition : /app/mysql
sudo ln -s /app/mysql /var/lib/mysql
As I could not figure out how to get datadir = /app/mysql/ to work
However Percona has discontinued the /etc/my.cnf file for version 5.6.
The question is :
How do you use the values from the Percona Configuration Wizard with version 5.6 without using the my.cnf file ?
