The location of the file will be the current working directory of
mysqld. When using OUTFILE you should always specify the full path.
However, if you did not, and need to find the file, you can use:

find / -name whaterver_you_named_the_file -print

If your client is not on the same machine as your server, you must do it
on the server.

Again, specify the full path to the file.

The only time LOCAL is useful is when your client and server are on
different machines.
