[thelist] MySQL - my.cnf not working??

Hello all, turns out that my odbc problem in Cold Fusion was because of the 
location of the mysql.sock file.  The CF drivers have it hard coded to a 
specific directory.

Anyhow, I have one of two choices.  I can recompile mysql and make it use 
the temp directory that CF likes or I can use the my.cnf file and set the 
temp location it that way.  Problem is, my, mysql doesn't seem to be 
reading my.cnf.  I should be able to set this variable by putting this in 
the my.cnf file. (This info was obtained in the .support-files/my-large.cnf 

socket          = /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock

But when I stop and start mysql, the mysql.sock is back in the /tmp/folder.

Can anyone offer any advice on fixing this?
