The location for binary logs, relay logs, etc. should be specifiable via the my.cnf for the server.  Back in the day you used to be able to specify where these files lived.

How to repeat:
log-bin = /opt/mysql/logs/bin.log
log-bin-index = /opt/mysql/logs/log-bin.index
log-error = /opt/mysql/logs/error.log

Suggested fix:
Allow directories in the filenames again.

Thank you for the report.

Please, provide content of /opt/viamedia/logs/mysql/log-bin.index file and output of ls /opt/viamedia/logs/mysql

Please also provide output of

ls -la /opt/viamedia/logs/mysql/bin.000001

What user mysqld run as?

I tried to repeat the issue different ways without success so I close the bug as "Can't repeat". If you can provide information how to repeat it reopen the bug.
