04-02-2013, 03:50 AM

i have instolled xampp 1.6.3a

when i restore mysql data bases i have getting every table name as simple letters

i want to do table names as case sensitive.

how do i do that

this is my my.cnf file

# Example MySQL config file for small systems.
# This is for a system with little memory (<= 64M) where MySQL is only used
# from time to time and it's important that the mysqld daemon
# doesn't use much resources.
# You can copy this file to
# D:/xampp/mysql/bin/my.cnf to set global options,
# mysql-data-dir/my.cnf to set server-specific options (in this
# installation this directory is D:/xampp/mysql/data) or
# ~/.my.cnf to set user-specific options.
# In this file, you can use all long options that a program supports.
# If you want to know which options a program supports, run the program
# with the "--help" option.

# The following options will be passed to all MySQL clients
# password = your_password
port = 3306
socket = mysql

# Here follows entries for some specific programs

# The MySQL server

port= 3306

socket= "/xampp/mysql/mysql.sock"


port = 3306
socket = mysql

character-set-server = latin1
collation-server = latin1_general_ci

key_buffer = 16K
max_allowed_packet = 1M
table_cache = 4
sort_buffer_size = 64K
read_buffer_size = 256K
read_rnd_buffer_size = 256K
net_buffer_length = 2K
thread_stack = 64K

# Don't listen on a TCP/IP port at all. This can be a security enhancement,
# if all processes that need to connect to mysqld run on the same host.
# All interaction with mysqld must be made via Unix sockets or named pipes.
# Note that using this option without enabling named pipes on Windows
# (using the "enable-named-pipe" option) will render mysqld useless!
server-id = 1

# Uncomment the following if you want to log updates

# Uncomment the following if you are NOT using BDB tables

# Uncomment the following if you are using InnoDB tables
#innodb_data_home_dir = D:/xampp/mysql/data/
#innodb_data_file_path = ibdata1:10M:autoextend
#innodb_log_group_home_dir = D:/xampp/mysql/data/
#innodb_log_arch_dir = D:/xampp/mysql/data/
# You can set .._buffer_pool_size up to 50 - 80 %
# of RAM but beware of setting memory usage too high
#set-variable = innodb_buffer_pool_size=16M
#set-variable = innodb_additional_mem_pool_size=2M
# Set .._log_file_size to 25 % of buffer pool size
#set-variable = innodb_log_file_size=5M
#set-variable = innodb_log_buffer_size=8M
#set-variable = innodb_lock_wait_timeout=50


# Remove the next comment character if you are not familiar with SQL

key_buffer = 8M
sort_buffer_size = 8M

key_buffer = 8M
sort_buffer_size = 8M



plz help me to sort out this

Table names can *NOT* be made case sensitive on Windows.

That's because MySQL uses the table name as the name of a file on Windows, and Windows file names are never case sensitive.

I'm assuming this is on windows, since I see Server="D:/xampp/mysql/bin/mysqld.exe" in there.
