Join Sheeri Cabral for an in-depth discussion in this video Connecting to an INI file, part of Understanding MariaDB for MySQL Users.
…CSV is not the only type of text file you can connect to.…An INI file is a configuration file,…also known as a CNF file that has pairs of variables and their values.…One example of this is MySQL's own my.cnf file.…We have provided an example in the exercises.…So let's take a look at it.…It should be in var/temp/my.cnf.…You can see that there are three groups, mysqld, mysql.server, and mysqld_safe.…
In each group, there are variables set to specific values.…Each group sets the log error and pin file options, which we will look at in a bit.…We can make this configuration file into a table quite easily with the CONNECT…storage engine.…In fact, there are two different ways to do that.…With a column layout or with a row layout.…I will start with an example of the row layout because it works better with…configuration files that have sections with a lot of different items.…In a row layout, each row is a key value pair.…So, let's connect to our database giving the PASSWORD.…
And database is the connect database.…So let's CREATE a TABLE, we can give it any name we want.…
