Here is the optimized my.cnf Configuration for MySQL 8 (on cPanel/WHM Servers) by Niaz Mohammad who is a PHP web developer. It is quite good and if amended correctly it brings some amazing results. The settings provided below are a starting point for a 4GB - 8GB RAM server with 4-8 CPU cores. If you have less or more resources available you should adjust accordingly to save CPU, RAM and disk I/O usage. You can adjust and tweak these values onย system by using database diagnostics tools like: https://github.com/major/MySQLTuner-perl or, https://launchpad.net/mysql-tuning-primer

# For advice on how to change settings please contact Centriohost Limited

# This Tuned mySQL Config is for MySQL 8 servers only of Centriohost Cloud Services
