Changing the Log Directory for MySQL

The Binlog index file is a text file that is made up of all of the running lists of binary logs for the MySQL database. This index file (.index) is generated when you enable binary logging. Typically, the index file is used to back up the logs. If the binary logging is disabled on the MySQL server, then the path to the data directory is displayed.

  1. From the CommCell Browser, navigate to Client Computers | <Client>| MySQL.
  2. Right-click the <Instance>, and then click Properties.
  3. In the dialog box that appears, enter a new pathname into the Log Data Directory box.

    For example: /var/lib/mysql

  4. Click OK.
