How to change the default clients' MySQL folder to another one?
In the Windows Start menu, select Start > Plesk > Plesk Reconfigurator.
Select “Change MySQL Data location”.
Browse to the new desired location of the My SQL data. A new folder can be created, if necessary. It is recommended to keep the “Check destination disk space” checkbox selected.
When the location is selected, click Next, and then click Next once again.
Changing the location for a MySQL server is not officially supported by Plesk since it can cause a lot of different issues with websites and overall Plesk performance.
As an alternative to moving the MySQL data directory to another location, consider mounting a partition from a new disk to the default MySQL data directory location /var/lib/mysql/.
What are the equal instructions for moving any existing MYSQL DB and create a new default MYSQL database directory on Plesk Onyx/Ubuntu?
