MySQL Default Port Change Ubuntu 20.04LTS
Hi, I am having issues figuring out how to change my default port number for MySQL. I have done it in the past, but now I cannot remember what file I need to change and its location for Ubuntu 20.04LTS.
Any assistance would be great!
Typically, MySQL's configuration files are located in
/etc/mysql. You can check the actual location of your config file by using the below command:
/usr/sbin/mysqld --help --verbose | less
At the begining of this output, you will see something similar to what I include below. My config is in the .my.cnf file.
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
From there, you will look for the
port option in the file. If it's missing, that may mean it is using the default 3306. In that case, you can just add the below text to the end of the file.
[client] port = 3306 [mysqld] port = 3306
