How do I know? On a new install of WordPress with MySQL…
MariaDB [wordpress]> show global variables like ‘autocommit’;
| Variable_name | Value |
| autocommit | ON |
1 row in set (0.00 sec)
This variable is set at the session level as follows.
Turn off autocommit:
set autocommit = 0;
Turn on autocommit:
set autocommit = 1;
Since it is at the session level – you have to do something like this – to change it every session.
In the file /etc/my.cnf [mysqld] init_connect='SET autocommit=0'
