I "know someone" who took way to long to find an answer to the question how to disable binary logging with MySQL so that it would no longer fills up all disk space putting a certain instance of WordPress offline every now and then. I find this solution rather unexpected: Putting
/etc/mysql/my.cnf is a weird mix of ini-file syntax
non-ini file syntax
skip-log-bin — without any "
= value" assignment. To
be sure that binary logging is turned off after a restart of the service,
here's a way to check:
mysql> SHOW VARIABLES LIKE 'log_bin'; +---------------+-------+ | Variable_name | Value | +---------------+-------+ | log_bin | OFF | +---------------+-------+ 1 row in set (0.00 sec)
Finally! If this post turns wrong in the future, it did work for MySQL 5.6.39.

Here's what upstream has to say about the new release 2.9.6. Enjoy :)
Expat 2.2.4 has recently been released. It features one major bugfix regarding files encoded as UTF-8, and improvements to the build system. If you are using a more ancient version of Visual Studio like 2012, please check the post-2.2.4 commits in Git for related fixes to compilation. Also, founding of Rhodri's work on Expat by the Core Infrastructure Initiative is coming to an end. If you can fund additional developers for work on Expat — including smooth integration of by-default protection against billion laughs denial-of-service attacks — please get in touch.
