  • Update: Allows changing data
  • Delete: Allows deleting data
  • File: Allows importing data from files and exporting data to files. Not set by default.

/etc/my.cnf Editor

Here you can edit your my.cnf directly. Please note that this editor does not check if what you enter makes any sense. It doesn't correct typos or wrong definitions.
