What exactly is the relationship among the following files installed by mysql56-server?


And in which of these should one change settings? Or should one do it in a file my.cnf somewhere else?

(This is very muddled given that the MacPorts port distributes files into somewhat different locations, relative to /opt/local, than the native MySQL distribution does, relative to /usr/local.)
