Hi
I am trying to edit my.cnf file. But i am getting only following executed message

Code:
[mysqld]
innodb_file_per_table=1
but when i m using mysqld --verbose --help then i m getting following output.


Code:
131025 18:50:25 [ERROR] Fatal error: Please read "Security" section of the manual to find out how to run mysqld as root!

mysqld  Ver 5.5.32-cll for Linux on x86_64 (MySQL Community Server (GPL))
Copyright (c) 2000, 2013, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.

Starts the MySQL database server.

Usage: mysqld [OPTIONS]

Default options are read from the following files in the given order:
/etc/my.cnf /etc/mysql/my.cnf /usr/etc/my.cnf ~/.my.cnf
The following groups are read: mysqld server mysqld-5.5
The following options may be given as the first argument:
--print-defaults        Print the program argument list and exit.
--no-defaults           Don't read default options from any option file.
--defaults-file=#       Only read default options from the given file #.
--defaults-extra-file=# Read this file after the global files are read.

  --abort-slave-event-count=#
                      Option used by mysql-test for debugging and testing of
                      replication.
  --allow-suspicious-udfs
                      Allows use of UDFs consisting of only one symbol xxx()
                      without corresponding xxx_init() or xxx_deinit(). That
                      also means that one can load any function from any
                      library, for example exit() from libc.so
  -a, --ansi          Use ANSI SQL syntax instead of MySQL syntax. This mode
                      will also set transaction isolation level 'serializable'.
  --auto-increment-increment[=#]
                      Auto-increment columns are incremented by this
  --auto-increment-offset[=#]
                      Offset added to Auto-increment columns. Used when
                      auto-increment-increment != 1
  --autocommit        Set default value for autocommit (0 or 1)
                      (Defaults to on; use --skip-autocommit to disable.)
  --automatic-sp-privileges
                      Creating and dropping stored procedures alters ACLs
                      (Defaults to on; use --skip-automatic-sp-privileges to disable.)
  --back-log=#        The number of outstanding connection requests MySQL can
                      have. This comes into play when the main MySQL thread
                      gets very many connection requests in a very short time
  -b, --basedir=name  Path to installation directory. All paths are usually
                      resolved relative to this
  --big-tables        Allow big result sets by saving all temporary sets on
                      file (Solves most 'table full' errors)
  --bind-address=name IP address to bind to.
  --binlog-cache-size=#
                      The size of the transactional cache for updates to
                      transactional engines for the binary log. If you often
                      use transactions containing many statements, you can
                      increase this to get more performance
  --binlog-direct-non-transactional-updates
                      Causes updates to non-transactional engines using
                      statement format to be written directly to binary log.
                      Before using this option make sure that there are no
                      dependencies between transactional and non-transactional
                      tables such as in the statement INSERT INTO t_myisam
                      SELECT * FROM t_innodb; otherwise, slaves may diverge
                      from the master.
  --binlog-do-db=name Tells the master it should log updates for the specified
                      database, and exclude all others not explicitly
                      mentioned.
  --binlog-format=name
                      What form of binary logging the master will use: either
                      ROW for row-based binary logging, STATEMENT for
                      statement-based binary logging, or MIXED. MIXED is
                      statement-based binary logging except for those
                      statements where only row-based is correct: those which
                      involve user-defined functions (i.e. UDFs) or the UUID()
                      function; for those, row-based binary logging is
                      automatically used. If NDBCLUSTER is enabled and
                      binlog-format is MIXED, the format switches to row-based
                      and back implicitly per each query accessing an
                      NDBCLUSTER table
  --binlog-ignore-db=name
                      Tells the master that updates to the given database
                      should not be logged to the binary log.
  --binlog-row-event-max-size=#
                      The maximum size of a row-based binary log event in
                      bytes. Rows will be grouped into events smaller than this
                      size if possible. The value has to be a multiple of 256.
  --binlog-stmt-cache-size=#
                      The size of the statement cache for updates to
                      non-transactional engines for the binary log. If you
                      often use statements updating a great number of rows, you
                      can increase this to get more performance
  --bootstrap         Used by mysql installation scripts.
  --bulk-insert-buffer-size=#
                      Size of tree cache used in bulk insert optimisation. Note
                      that this is a limit per thread!
  --character-set-client-handshake
                      Don't ignore client side character set value sent during
                      handshake.
                      (Defaults to on; use --skip-character-set-client-handshake to disable.)

                      The transaction completion type, one of NO_CHAIN, CHAIN,
                      RELEASE
  --concurrent-insert[=name]

  --delayed-insert-limit=#
                      After inserting delayed_insert_limit rows, the INSERT
                      DELAYED handler will check if there are any SELECT
                      statements pending. If so, it allows these to execute
                      before continuing
  --delayed-insert-timeout=#
                      How long a INSERT DELAYED thread should wait for INSERT

                      What size queue (in rows) should be allocated for
                      handling INSERT DELAYED. If the queue becomes full, any
                      client that does INSERT DELAYED will wait until there is
                      room in the queue again

                      Deprecated, use --optimizer-switch instead.
                      (Defaults to on; use --skip-engine-condition-pushdown to disable.)
  --event-scheduler[=name]
                      Enable the event scheduler. Possible values are ON, OFF,
                      and DISABLED (keep the event scheduler completely

  -T, --exit-info[=#] Used for debugging. Use at your own risk.
  --expire-logs-days=#
                      If non-zero, binary logs will be purged after
                      expire_logs_days days; possible purges happen at startup
                      and at binary log rotation
  --external-locking  Use system (external) locking (disabled by default).
                      With this option enabled you can run myisamchk to test
                      (not repair) tables while the MySQL server is running.
                      Disable with --skip-external-locking.
  --flush             Flush MyISAM tables to disk between SQL commands
  --flush-time=#      A dedicated thread is created to flush all tables at the
                      given interval
  --ft-boolean-syntax=name

  --key-buffer-size=# The size of the buffer used for index blocks for MyISAM
                      tables. Increase this to get better index handling (for
                      all reads and multiple writes) to as much as you can
                      afford
  --key-cache-age-threshold=#
                      This characterizes the number of hits a hot block has to
                      be untouched until it is considered aged enough to be
                      downgraded to a warm block. This specifies the percentage
                      ratio of that number of hits to the total number of

  --local-infile      Enable LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE
                      (Defaults to on; use --skip-local-infile to disable.)
  --lock-wait-timeout=#
                      Timeout in seconds to wait for a lock before returning an
                      error.
  -l, --log[=name]    Log connections and queries to file (deprecated option,
                      use --general-log/--general-log-file instead).
  --log-bin[=name]    Log update queries in binary format. Optional (but
                      strongly recommended to avoid replication problems if
                      server's hostname changes) argument should be the chosen
                      location for the binary log files.
  --log-bin-index=name
                      File that holds the names for last binary log files.
  --log-bin-trust-function-creators
                      If set to FALSE (the default), then when --log-bin is
                      used, creation of a stored function (or trigger) is
                      allowed only to users having the SUPER privilege and only
                      if this stored function (trigger) may not break binary
                      logging. Note that if ALL connections to this server
                      ALWAYS use row-based binary logging, the security issues
                      do not exist and the binary logging cannot break, so you
                      can safely set this to TRUE
  --log-error[=name]  Error log file
  --log-isam[=name]   Log all MyISAM changes to file.

  --log-slave-updates Tells the slave to log the updates from the slave thread
                      to the binary log. You will need to turn it on if you
                      plan to daisy-chain the slaves
  --log-slow-admin-statements
                      Log slow OPTIMIZE, ANALYZE, ALTER and other

                      Log slow queries to a table or log file. Defaults logging
                      to table mysql.slow_log or hostname-slow.log if
                      --log-output=file is used. Must be enabled to activate
                      other slow log options. Deprecated option, use

  --log-tc-size=#     Size of transaction coordinator log.
  -W, --log-warnings[=#]
                      Log some not critical warnings to the log file

                      as a decimal value with microsecond precision
  --low-priority-updates
                      INSERT/DELETE/UPDATE has lower priority than selects
  --lower-case-table-names[=#]

  --one-thread        (Deprecated): Only use one thread (for debugging under
                      Linux). Use thread-handling=no-threads instead.
  --open-files-limit=#
                      If this is not 0, then mysqld will use this value to
                      reserve file descriptors to use with setrlimit(). If this
                      value is 0 then mysqld will reserve max_connections*5 or

                      number of file descriptors
  --optimizer-prune-level=#
                      Controls the heuristic(s) applied during query
                      optimization to prune less-promising partial plans from
                      the optimizer search space. Meaning: 0 - do not apply any
                      heuristic, thus perform exhaustive search; 1 - prune
                      plans based on number of retrieved rows
  --optimizer-search-depth=#
                      Maximum depth of search performed by the query optimizer.
                      Values larger than the number of relations in a query
                      result in better query plans, but take longer to compile
                      a query. Values smaller than the number of tables in a
                      relation result in faster optimization, but may produce
                      very bad query plans. If set to 0, the system will
                      automatically pick a reasonable value; if set to 63, the
                      optimizer will switch to the original find_best search.
                      NOTE: The value 63 and its associated behaviour is
                      deprecated

  --read-buffer-size=#
                      Each thread that does a sequential scan allocates a
                      buffer of this size for each table it scans. If you do
                      many sequential scans, you may want to increase this
                      value
  --read-only         Make all non-temporary tables read-only, with the
                      exception for replication (slave) threads and users with

                      The location and name of the file that remembers where
                      the SQL replication thread is in the relay logs
  --relay-log-purge   if disabled - do not purge relay logs. if enabled - purge
                      them as soon as they are no more needed
                      (Defaults to on; use --skip-relay-log-purge to disable.)
  --relay-log-recovery
                      Enables automatic relay log recovery right after the
                      database startup, which means that the IO Thread starts
                      re-fetching from the master right after the last
                      transaction processed
  --relay-log-space-limit=#
                      Maximum space to use for all relay logs
  --replicate-do-db=name
                      Tells the slave thread to restrict replication to the
                      specified database. To specify more than one database,
                      use the directive multiple times, once for each database.
                      Note that this will only work if you do not use
                      cross-database queries such as UPDATE some_db.some_table
                      SET foo='bar' while having selected a different or no
                      database. If you need cross database updates to work,
                      make sure you have 3.23.28 or later, and use
                      replicate-wild-do-table=db_name.%.
  --replicate-do-table=name
                      Tells the slave thread to restrict replication to the
                      specified table. To specify more than one table, use the
                      directive multiple times, once for each table. This will
                      work for cross-database updates, in contrast to
                      replicate-do-db.
  --replicate-ignore-db=name
                      Tells the slave thread to not replicate to the specified
                      database. To specify more than one database to ignore,
                      use the directive multiple times, once for each database.
                      This option will not work if you use cross database
                      updates. If you need cross database updates to work, make
                      sure you have 3.23.28 or later, and use
                      replicate-wild-ignore-table=db_name.%.
  --replicate-ignore-table=name
                      Tells the slave thread to not replicate to the specified
                      table. To specify more than one table to ignore, use the
                      directive multiple times, once for each table. This will
                      work for cross-database updates, in contrast to
                      replicate-ignore-db.
  --replicate-rewrite-db=name
                      Updates to a database with a different name than the
                      original. Example:
                      replicate-rewrite-db=master_db_name->slave_db_name.
  --replicate-same-server-id
                      In replication, if set to 1, do not skip events having
                      our server id. Default value is 0 (to break infinite
                      loops in circular replication). Can't be set to 1 if
                      --log-slave-updates is used.
  --replicate-wild-do-table=name
                      Tells the slave thread to restrict replication to the
                      tables that match the specified wildcard pattern. To
                      specify more than one table, use the directive multiple
                      times, once for each table. This will work for
                      cross-database updates. Example:
                      replicate-wild-do-table=foo%.bar% will replicate only
                      updates to tables in all databases that start with foo
                      and whose table names start with bar.
  --replicate-wild-ignore-table=name
                      Tells the slave thread to not replicate to the tables
                      that match the given wildcard pattern. To specify more
                      than one table to ignore, use the directive multiple
                      times, once for each table. This will work for
                      cross-database updates. Example:
                      replicate-wild-ignore-table=foo%.bar% will not do updates
                      to tables in databases that start with foo and whose
                      table names start with bar.
  --report-host=name  Hostname or IP of the slave to be reported to the master
                      during slave registration. Will appear in the output of
                      SHOW SLAVE HOSTS. Leave unset if you do not want the
                      slave to register itself with the master. Note that it is
                      not sufficient for the master to simply read the IP of
                      the slave off the socket once the slave connects. Due to
                      NAT and other routing issues, that IP may not be valid
                      for connecting to the slave from the master or other
                      hosts
  --report-password=name
                      The account password of the slave to be reported to the
                      master during slave registration
  --report-port=#     Port for connecting to slave reported to the master
                      during slave registration. Set it only if the slave is
                      listening on a non-default port or if you have a special
                      tunnel from the master or other clients to the slave. If
                      not sure, leave this option unset
  --report-user=name  The account user name of the slave to be reported to the
                      master during slave registration
  --rpl-recovery-rank=#
                      Unused, will be removed
  --safe-mode         Skip some optimize stages (for testing). Deprecated.
  --safe-user-create  Don't allow new user creation by the user who has no
                      write privileges to the mysql.user table.

                      (pre-4.1) passwords
  --secure-file-priv=name
                      Limit LOAD DATA, SELECT ... OUTFILE, and LOAD_FILE() to
                      files within specified directory
  --server-id=#       Uniquely identifies the server instance in the community
                      of replication partners
  --show-slave-auth-info
                      Show user and password in SHOW SLAVE HOSTS on this
                      master.
  --skip-grant-tables Start without grant tables. This gives all users FULL
                      ACCESS to all tables.
  --skip-host-cache   Don't cache host names.
  --skip-name-resolve Don't resolve hostnames. All hostnames are IP's or
                      'localhost'.
  --skip-networking   Don't allow connection with TCP/IP
  --skip-new          Don't use new, possibly wrong routines.
  --skip-show-database
                      Don't allow 'SHOW DATABASE' commands
  --skip-slave-start  If set, slave is not autostarted.
  --skip-stack-trace  Don't print a stack trace on failure.
  --skip-thread-priority
                      Don't give threads different priorities. This option is
                      deprecated because it has no effect; the implied behavior
                      is already the default.
  --slave-compressed-protocol
                      Use compression on master/slave protocol
  --slave-exec-mode=name
                      Modes for how replication events should be executed.
                      Legal values are STRICT (default) and IDEMPOTENT. In
                      IDEMPOTENT mode, replication will not stop for operations
                      that are idempotent. In STRICT mode, replication will
                      stop on any unexpected difference between the master and

Hello :)

MySQL configuration changes are made in the following file:

/etc/my.cnf

The following thread is useful if you are seeking help on which specific edits to make:

MySQL Server Stats Gathering Tool

[mysqld]

That's a default file added. You can start by reading up on using Option files here:

4.2.3.3. Using Option Files - mysql.com Documentation

In that first paragraph you'll see this comment:
MySQL provides a number of preconfigured option files.
If you click thru it you come to this page:

5.1.2. Server Configuration Defaults - mysql.com Documentation

That page explains the default files already on your system available to be used. You'd read up on those, select the best one depending on your system (my-small.cnf, my-medium.cnf, my-large.cnf, or my-huge.cnf), and copy it, rename it to my.cnf, and replace the one you have in use now.

Now that you've got all the variables you're looking for, you'll need to leave the system run, using it for at least 24 hours. Next, gather the stats and go from there.


You really shouldn't be changing anything with this until you've read up on it and understand a bit more about what you're doing.

GL!
