By default they end up in /var/db/mysql and are named $hostname-bin.### Also, the information you read online is incorrect. By default, binary logging (which are the transaction logs) is disabled. I don't recall whether this is a FreeBSD port specific modification. You can turn it on by putting a my.cnf in /var/db/mysql. Templates named my-$size.cnf are in /usr/local/share/mysql and are well-commented. > I'll also note that it is not in var/db/mysql with the rest of the mysql > data files and the ib_logfiles which would have been useful, but the data I > am trying to recover is from a MyISAM. I take it you tried myisamchk? -- Mel Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules and never get to the software part. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
