This is the configuration file of MySQL. For new DBAs, depending on your needs (eg. if the database is small, medium, large), just copy the appropriate my.cnf in /usr/local/mysql/support-files/ . Then just change couple of parameters and you are all set. There is no need to make a huge fuss about it. Many experts will tell you to change this file, I recommend not to listen to them. MySQL was created to be simple... If you really need to change it, then make sure you know what you are doing.
