You get inbuilt my.cnf files with the installation package - my-large.cnf, my-small.cnf, my-medium.cnf. You should find them under support-files folder under mysql installation directory

Hi,

Normally my.cnf will be located at /etc/my.cnf . A sample file will look like this. You can customize this according to your requirement.

Hi,

Please check your mysql log and paste the output here.

Mysql log can be located at /var/log/mysqld.log

Also please run the following command and paste the output. Make sure to run this in mysql prompt.

mysql> show slave status\G;
