How to set lower_case_table_names in MAMP

Environment – Mac OS X
I have struggled a little to set lower_case_table_names =2 for mysql using MAMP. I have unsuccessfully tried configuring /etc/my.cnf and ~/.my.cnf. Finally (with a little help) I found that they are setting this value in MAMP/bin/startMysql.sh . Location of this file might differ because in your version of MAMP.
My config file looks like this

Change this file to set it to required value. As you might have guessed, you can use the same approach to update other params like log-error location, or port number (port number can be changed from MAMP preferences too)
