I'm running Mysql 5.5 on Ubuntu 12 LTS. How should I enable LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE in my.cnf?

I've tried adding local-infile in my config at various places but I'm still getting the "The used command is not allowed with this MySQL version"

Download script demo [LINK]
Download script demo [LINK 2] Download script demo [LINK 2]

From the MySQL 5.5 manual page:

LOCAL works only if your server and your client both have been configured to permit it. For example, if mysqld was started with --local-infile=0, LOCAL does not work. See Section 6.1.6, “Security Issues with LOAD DATA LOCAL”.

You should set the option:


into your [mysql] entry of my.cnf file or call mysql client with the --local-infile option:

mysql --local-infile -uroot -pyourpwd yourdbname 

You have to be sure that the same parameter is defined into your [mysqld] section too to enable the "local infile" feature server side.

It's a security restriction.

The my.cnf file you should edit is the /etc/mysql/my.cnf file. Just:

sudo nano /etc/mysql/my.cnf 

Then add:

[mysqld] local-infile   [mysql] local-infile  

The headers [mysqld] and [mysql] are already given, just locate them in the file and add local-infile underneath each of them.

It works for me on MySQL 5.5 on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

I solved this problem on MySQL 8.0.11 with the mysql terminal command:

SET GLOBAL local_infile = true; 

I mean I logged in first with the usual:

mysql -u user -p* 

After that you can see the status with the command:


It should be ON. I will not be writing about security issued with loading local files into database here.

in case your flavor of mysql on ubuntu does NOT under any circumstances work and you still get the 1148 error, you can run the load data infile command via command line

open a terminal window

run mysql -u YOURUSERNAME -p --local-infile YOURDBNAME

you will be requested to insert mysqluser password

you will be running MySQLMonitor and your command prompt will be mysql>

run your load data infile command (dont forget to end with a semicolon ; )

like this:

load data local infile '/home/tony/Desktop/2013Mini.csv' into table Reading_Table FIELDS TERMINATED BY ',' ENCLOSED BY '"' LINES TERMINATED BY '
