MySQL Question

mysql command for showing current configuration variables

Can not find a command that displays the current configuration of mysql from within the database.

I know I could look at /etc/mysql/my.cnf but that is not what I need.

Answer

What you are looking for is this:

SHOW VARIABLES;  

You can modify it further like any query:

SHOW VARIABLES LIKE '%max%';
