How do I change my nnodb_buffer_pool_size

I know this needs to change, but I don't know where the file resides, how to determine what it's current size is and then how to increase it. I've seen several online articles, but I'm still open to a ninja walking me through it.

Standing in the need of knowledge...!

If you have phpMyAdmin available on that server, you can look it up under MySQL Variables.

Edit your /etc/my.cnf file or windows equivalent.
In the section  [mysqld] , Add the following line :
innodb_buffer_pool_size=1024M
Then restart MySQL service.

For the 1024M value, MySQL says that you can use up to 80% of your total available RAM.
But i would rather suggest you start with 30% and performs tests to see if and how it does increases performances.
