It may be in another configuration file. Locate the mysqld binary
and run it directly like this:
Then look in the output for something that looks like this:
Default options are read from the following files in the given order:
/etc/my.cnf /usr/local/mysql/var/my.cnf ~/.my.cnf
The following groups are read: mysqld server
The following options may be given as the first argument:
--print-defaults Print the program argument list and exit
--no-defaults Don't read default options from any options file
--defaults-file=# Only read default options from the given file #
--defaults-extra-file=# Read this file after the global files are read
Note the pathnames of the option files and check the contents of those
listed (at least those that actually exist on your system).
