Re: root user cannot change system variables?

Again, thank you very much Peter. I really appreciate your quick responses!

As the root user, I tried:
ls -aR / | grep 'my*\.cnf'

I only got one hit but I have not figured out how to get the directory of the file! I am still looking for an answer. Google is my friend :)

Regarding the mysql error file, /var/log has no such error file. Maybe I do not recognize it? I tried to paste the listing, but:
"A word you have used in your post has been banned from use."

I did find an error log in /usr/local/mysql/data.

When I try to start the server, these lines are added:
2022-01-15T17:21:53.583893Z 0 [ERROR] [MY-000058] [Server] Unknown suffix '%' used for variable 'port' (value '%PORT%').
