Start MySQL at startup (revisited)
Authored by: dansroka on Dec 19, '03 01:30:02PM

I installed MySQL using the excellent package made by the Server Logistics folks - it comes with a handy System PrefPane that lets you launch at startup, restart, and reset your root password.

I'll second this. Server Logistics' 'Complete' line are the most Mac-like (read: easiest) way to install. In addition to MySQL they also have installers for Apache 2, PHP, and Jakarta Tomcat.

Seconded again - the ServerLogistics packages are excellently put together, very well documented and easy to install and remove. The preference panes they come with are very convenient. I use them at work and at home, but my only worry is that my brain will grow fat and lazy as a result, so that if they decide to stop distributing their packages I'll have to relearn the fine art of compiling Apahce and PHP. As it stands, though, I'm very grateful for their work, which IMO combines the best aspects of Open Source software and the Apple philosophy...

It's good to keep your hand in with the beneath-the-surface stuff, though, so hints and discussions like this are always important.
