The file /etc/mysql/mysql.conf.d from aws ec2 does not exist [closed]

Other than that, I’m trying to find a file like the title within aws ec2, but it doesn’t exist. I think I deleted it without knowing it. Is there any other solution when the file doesn’t exist? Reinstallation is considered as a last resort.


I feel you man and I really hate to be that guy but this is why we need backup. That being said, you can just recreate the directory manually and add a mysql.cnf inside. Typically, it only contains placeholder section for your mysql config with some license texts.

I don’t know what else is in your config file but if you have custom settings, you can also add them by hand.

Usually, there is also a mysqldump.cnf inside conf.d with the following content
