Change my.ini values during installtime?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have made an installer for Apache/PHP/MySQL and so on but the user is restricted to installing to a particular drive+path depending on the values I insert in the [i]my.ini[/i] file which can reside inside the mySQL folder itself. However I was wondering if there was a way to change these values dynamically during installtime based on where the user is planning on installing the package, for example if they wanted to install to an F:/ drive (perhaps an extra Hard Disk on their system), could I have the [i]my.ini[/i] file values point to this when written to disk ie [b]datadir=F:/www/mysql/data[/b] and so on...? :)

I don't see why not... but you'd need something capable of search/replace, something like awk/perl, where you could simply substutite predefined markers for paths.
