Default Data Directory for MariaDB?

Where does MariaDB save the data? I am using Ubuntu 11.10 and would be interested to know what is the exact path to the datafiles. I apologise if this is one of these questions which has been asked often before but I could not find an answer in the Knowledge Base.


The data directory location is controlled by the datadir variable. Look at your /etc/mysql/my.cnf file to see where your installation of MariaDB is configured to store data. The default is /var/lib/mysql but it is often changed, like for example if you are using a RAID array.
