    Hi ...

    Please check if the mysql_home variable is ok:

    MYSQL_HOME=<MySQL bin location>

    To locate the configuration file, Extract checks the MYSQL_HOME environment variable: If MYSQL_HOME is set, Extract uses the configuration file in the specified directory. If MYSQL_HOME is not set, Extract queries the information_schema.global_variables table to determine the MySQL installation directory.

    More details:

    Try it and put here your experiences.
