I have mysql server. I want to start creating log to record amends made to the database. I understand you do this by binary logging. I have not had success setting this up. Following advice in another thread I did as follows.
In my.ini file amended it thus. The my.ini file is in C:windows ( i have xp pro service pack2).
I then stopped mysql server and restarted it. I made a change to the database but see no new file being created in C:/mybackup/log-bin/mylogbin. I incidentally setup that folder structure.
Could somebody show me what to do to at least get logging? I will then take it from there.
