Question about mysql vps config files

vps

#1

i have subscribed to a Mysql VPS server & I would like to know if i can access the mysql configuration files. (my.cnf)
I guess it is fully managed as i don’t see access information.

thank you.

UPDATE:
I have found what i was looking for.
in ssh
/etc/mysql/my.cnf

I still need to know how to check the memory usage of the mysql VPS server

Hello,

Yup, you found it! You can monitor your VPS’ usage in two locations on the panel; Status > MySQL Usage ( https://panel.dreamhost.com/index.cgi?tree=status.mysql& ) and VPS > Manage Resources ( https://panel.dreamhost.com/index.cgi?tree=vserver.usage& )

Thanks

The file you’re looking at (/etc/mysql/my.cnf) is part of your web VPS, not the MySQL VPS.

The MySQL VPS is fully managed; you cannot access it (or its configuration files) directly.
