    my.cnf help needed please

    Hi all

    I am running a vbulletin forum on EuroVPS, I have just recently started getting some database errors and it is apparently due to my max_allowed_packet being set at 1M so I need to increase that in the my.cnf file, which apparently is in the /etc folder. I do not have this my.cnf file so is there anybody that help me to create one?

    Many Thanks.

    Default options are read from the following files in the given order:
    /etc/mysql/my.cnf /etc/my.cnf ~/.my.cnf

    ~/.my.cnf most likely meaning /var/lib/mysql/my.cnf

    So, if you're not finding it in those places...
    then yes, just create the file in one of those locations.

    You should probably contact their support , from the reviews they seem to have a very helpful support stream .

    If you have root access on your server, then you can create a my.cnf like this . Its better you need to contact the support team regarding this. Note that the my.cnf is one of the main configuration file of mysql, so be careful modifying it.
