I have just set up a new installation of MySQL 5.0.63. I am reading some tutorials on securing the installation. The tutorials are referring to a main config file called my.cnf which I am not able to find. I run # find / -name my.cnf; and nothing comes up. I have looked in the main installation directory /usr/local/apache/mysql and nothing, as well as, in the /etc directory there is nothing.
Please help me with this issue in setting up the file in the correct place with the correct references.
