mysql-zrm.conf - Configuration file for ZRM for MySQL




The configuration file mysql-zrm.conf stores site-wide (or backup-set specific) parameters that control operation of the ZRM for MySQL suite. Custom parameters can be associated with a particular backup set by specifying them in a mysql-zrm.conf file stored in a /etc/mysql-zrm/<backup set name>/ directory, or by specifying an --options conf_file on most of the command line utilities. Parameters (and --options) specified on the command line override both site-wide and backup-set specific parameters. Note that if certain parameters are not specified in the the site-wide mysql-zrm.conf file, ZRM for MySQL suite can also use the MySQL options file (my.cnf) parameters.
