Hi there, I know this is off-topic or semi off-topic but I really need some help since I am stucked.

I’m trying to redirect MariaDB logs to `/var/log/mysql/*.log` files as shown below on the `/etc/my.cnf.d/server.cnf` file:

#
# These groups are read by MariaDB server.
# Use it for options that only the server (but not clients) should see
#
# See the examples of server my.cnf files in /usr/share/mysql/
#

# this is read by the standalone daemon and embedded servers
[server]

# this is only for the mysqld standalone daemon
[mysqld]
#wait_timeout(800
#interactive_timeout = 28800
max_allowed_packetQ2M

#General Query Log
general_log_file = /var/log/mysql/mysql_query.log
general_log = 1

#Error Log
log_error = /var/log/mysql/mysql_error.log

#Slow Query Log
slow_query_log = 1
slow_query_log_file = /var/log/mysql/mysql_slow.log
long_query_time = 2
log-queries-not-using-indexes

collation-server = utf8_general_ci
init-connect=’SET NAMES utf8′
character-set-server = utf8

# this is only for embedded server
[embedded]

# This group is only read by MariaDB servers, not by MySQL.
# If you use the same .cnf file for MySQL and MariaDB,
# you can put MariaDB-only options here
[mariadb]

# This group is only read by MariaDB-10.0 servers.
# If you use the same .cnf file for MariaDB of different versions,
# use this group for options that older servers don’t understand
[mariadb-5.5]

`mysql_query.log`, `mysql_error.log` and `mysql_slow.log` should go to
`/var/log/mysql/`, right? For some reason, unknow to me, they are not going. I did run the following query:

MariaDB [(none)]> show variables like ‘%log%’;

And this is the output:

I have tried putting same config at `[mariadb]` and `[mariadb-5.5]` and result is the same.

Why changes are not working? I have restarted MariaDB (mysql) service several times and even I have restarted the whole server. Seems like MariaDB is not reading those values, any advice?
