I'm trying connect 2 database with replication,
the manual says to alternate the file my.cnf
( to enable bin-log en server-id)
all the rest works, but in the end nothing changes because I can't find and so can't alternate the file.
could someone help me with this?


ps: yes, I know that I am an ammateur,
but you have to start somewere don't you?
ps: forgive my poor English skills

Additional info:

Sorry but you need to read more the Manual regarding how to run
2 server instances starting either as service or standalone. The most
easy way is to use 2 separate my.ini files and to install the service
with the option --defaults-file=path_for_my.ini or to start them with
that option when started as standalone.

Also notice you must to use 2 different service names, different datadir
and basedir and different TCP/IP ports.
