    Hello, I am using fat32 FS.
    chmod 644 /opt/lampp/etc/my.cnf
    But it doesn’t work!
    Is there a way to make it work on FAT32 file sysyem?

    Roy, the FS is not your problem, the problem it’s that probably you mysql directory is not /opt/lampp/etc/my.cnf try with /etc/mysql/my.conf maybe can resolve, good luck!!

    Hay Roy!
    In fat32FS all files have rights 777 everytime! You can set rights 644 in Linux (ext2/ext3/ext4) FS.

    sudo chmod 644 /etc/mysql/my.cnf
    sudo chmod 644 /etc/mysql/conf.d/mysqld_safe_syslog.cnf

    that should do it
