How to change the default port of mysql from 3306 to 3360

You need to edit your my.cnf file and make sure you have the port set as in the following line:

port = 3360

Then restart your MySQL service and you should be good to go. There is no query you can run to make this change because the port is not a dynamic variable (q.v. here for MySQL documentation showing a table of all system variables).
