Something like (not tested):

ssh fooServer "cp /etc/my.cnf /etc/my.cnf.back; sed -i '/^max_connection/ s/.*/max_connections = 200/' mysql/my.cnf"

This will only work if my.cnf already has a max_connections entry that is not commented out. There are lots of ways to do this.

Maybe (also not tested):

ssh fooServer "cp /etc/my.cnf /etc/my.cnf.back; sed -i '/max_connection/ d' mysql/my.cnf; echo 'max_connections = 200' >> /etc/my.cnf
