How to move database macOS

I am trying to move my database from my main hard drive to my home library folder on an external drive.

I am running a fresh installation of sierra 10.12.5 with a fresh installation of mysql 5.7.18 64bit.

I cannot move the database within mysql. I can physically move the database to another location, but I cannot get mysql to use it. I have gone through thousands of posts and links over the last couple of weeks and tried every single one to no avail and it would seem that all the 'advice' is from people that have never done it in sierra. The advice may work in windoze or Linux, but not under OSX.

Basically, mysql seems to ignore any "my.cnf" file in any location.

One would think this an easy task, but apparently not.
