What do I put is this file? The only likely file that I can see is
/etc/mysql/mysqlconfig. Where is thhis documented in Mysql?

Is this change made in the Backend or the Remote Frontend?
I tried both .. but no change. (the file is /etc/mysql/my.conf)

I don't know where in the documentation are you found this, I can not see it

There needs to be a howto on this remote frontend/database issue, there is
very little documented it seems ;-(
