Thank you Mel and Paul for the suggestions. From what I understand the
general query log is more for debugging and the binary log is for point in
time recovery and replication. I'll be adding a my.cnf file (using the
my-large.cnf as a skeleton) soon. I'm glad the issue was caught earlier on
and now I'm the wiser thanks to you guys. I wonder why the default is no.
I can't think of anyone who wouldn't find the binary logging beneficial.
I can think of a reason for FreeBSD. The binary logs are never deleted and
upon every server restart a new one is created. If you're like me, developing
on a laptop with a webenvironment including 'Mysql server', shutting down
your laptop daily, you quickly find yourself having full /var partition.
That can be alleviated by adding the logs to newsyslog.conf and gzipping and
rotating them regularly.
If you don't restart mysql much, something like this would work:
/var/db/mysql/[hostname]-bin.* mysql:mysql 660 7 * $W6D0 JBG
If you're restarting it daily, something like this should work:
/var/db/mysql/[hostname]-bin.* mysql:mysql 660 25 * $D0 JBG
Adjust the counts and the rotation schedule to your liking and, of course, use
your own hostname and fully qualified hostname.
