Starting MySQL after upgrading to OS X Leopard

Posted by Sat, 27 Oct 2007 11:13:00 GMT

If you upgraded to OS X Leopard and are running MySQL from the installer1, you might be having some problems with starting it from the GUI interface. There isn’t a fix from MySQL yet, so to get around that… you can run it from the command-line.

Start MySQL from the command line

cd /usr/local/mysql; ./bin/mysqld_safe &

This should get MySQL up and running for you. If someone wants to share a tip on how to get this to start automatically on reboot, please post a comment and I’ll help get the word out.

1 I didn’t have this problem as I installed MySQL via MacPorts... but this came up for a few members of PLANET ARGON after they upgraded to Leopard.
