You should find it in the /etc directory. If it's not there, you're running
under defaults which you should change. With the installation there should
be some files named my-large.cnf, my-huge.cnf, etc. You can use one of
these files as your template and save the end result as my.cnf in the /etc

Subject: Re: my.cnf location ?
Thanks for your reply, I have changed all ownership to mysql and to group
mysql chmod 660 but still can't find it, searching as root or as mysql. In
which default directory should it be?
