Optimizing MySQL Configuration

MySQL's configuration file is often the focus of too much attention and too much tweaking of variables that make no difference -- or worse, have the potential to negatively impact performance. The sample default configuration files that come with MySQL are unfortunately not very helpful or good, either. You'll learn a practical approach to generate a sensible configuration file that sets what's needed and omits what isn't. The result will be a more stable and performant server that's resistant to many common problems.
