MySQL Workbench Could not Save Configuration File (I think the issue is with Windows)
Posted on 2014-03-06
Recently, when I make changes (By hitting Apply, on the screen print attached) to my MySQL configuration file, I get an error Dialog (attached) that says:
Could not Save Configuration File
There was an error saving the configuration file.
PermissionDeniedError: Can't copy
c:\users\areese\appdata\local\temp\2\tmpyhgy99 to C: ProgramData\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.5\my.ini
My gut tells me that this isn't a MySQL issue, but something to do with Windows being snarky about permissions. I'm able to modify the config file manually, but i'd rather do it through MySQL Workbench.
