  I install mysql on Linux and can login but I see a warning  and I am not sure how to resolve it.

Warning: skipping '!includedir /etc/mysql' directive as maximum includerecursion level was reached in file /etc/mysql/my.cnf at line 142

Open in new window

line 142 in my.cnf is
!includedir /etc/mysql

Open in new window

Thanks for your help

This occurs because the include command tries to include itself since your my.cnf is in the same directory as the include directory line.

Usually you should have something like :
!includedir /etc/mysql/conf.d

With specifig configuration files located into that conf.d directory
