    What are the equal instructions for moving any existing MYSQL DB and create a new default MYSQL database directory on Plesk Onyx/Ubuntu?

    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/.
