I'm new to My SQL . I installed My SQL version 5.2.38 and the default Directory location for the database is Program Data/MySQL/MySQL Server 5.5/data . Is this controled with the my.ini file? How can I change the location so can put the data on the server directory?

Thanks,
Mike

Yes you can change the default datadir in my.ini.

But do a backup before an stop the MySql services
