10.5: Control MySQL server with launchd
Authored by: aljoscha on Jul 02, '09 08:45:34AM

Thanks for the hint, but can you elaborate on why this method is better than the "mysqld_safe"-method?
I thought this was the method encouraged by mysql.com?
Cheers, Alex

10.5: Control MySQL server with launchd
Authored by: mmnw on Oct 04, '09 09:46:25AM

It aint better per se, it's different. The method suggested by mysql.com totally ignores the architecture of OS X and treats it like any other *NIX system. mysqld_safe is a nice idea, but OS X already provides a tool for everything mysqld_safe does: watching over the daemon, logging and restarting if necessary. The only reason mysql.com suggests mysqld_safe is because nothing like launchd exists on other *NIX systems.
