    You cannot have a user-defined customized my.cnf at the account level. MySQL will not support this option. The only user defined option is the password for your user which can be set using a .my.cnf at the account level. Any other options will be ignored.

    I suggest asking your host to add this setting, or alternatively obtaining a VPS where you could control your own node and then have your own my.cnf settings.
