Re: searching for etc/my.cnf and CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX


and why?

it is and where it isn't unintentional report it and help to get it fixed, that said from a admin which dozens of MariaDB servers where the datadir was originally created on Windows under MySQL 3.x, got moved in prduction for some years to MacOS, later to Linux and now is running MariaDB 10.1 just fine with the same datadirs and the help of "mysql_upgrade" over the years
