I am running xampp on windows XP.
After installation, the my.ini and my.cnf files contained a line:
I moved my data files and changed the datadir line in all my .ini and .cnf files to point to a location on my F: drive.
However, MySql continues to use C:/server/xampp/xampp/mysql/data as the datadir location
I scanned every file on my C: drive and verified that 'C:/server/xampp/xampp/mysql/data' is never assigned to the datadir variable.
Starting and stopping the MySQL server does not help.
Rebooting does not help.
Reinstalling xampp does not help.
My question: where is MySql getting the incorrect (original) vlaue for this variable?
