comment Can't change MySQL/MariaDB server collation option
Question: Are you trying to change the server collation on a remote server ???

comment Can't change MySQL/MariaDB server collation option
Yes, it is most definitely a command. (dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/mysqld.html) mysqld is the server process. It is a command you can run on the command line to see options. mysqld will not allow two server daemons on the same data. Once it is doing so, you can mysqld --help --verbose like the documentation says (which I have done for years)

Please run mysqld --help --verbose 2>/dev/null | grep my | grep cnf | head -1 as I first mentioned. What's the output ??? (I specified mysqld because you said you are trying to change the server's collation_server).
