Start MySQL at startup (revisited)
Authored by: Erik Toh on Dec 20, '03 09:44:18AM

There's a problem with this hint; /System/Library/StartupItems is reserved for Apple-default services and messing with it is just asking for trouble. If you must do so, install your services in /Library/StartupItems.

Since MySQL is installed by Fink, why not just use daemonic? Installing it as a startup service is as simple as typing the following command:

daemonic install MySQL
