Restore PHP, MySQL, etc. after a fresh OS X install
Authored by: rahulbenegal on Jun 01, '06 05:57:53AM

Each time i do a OS X upgrade i seem to lose mysql and its data, php setting, Rails and i have no idea what else.
(In the Linux world, i used to install into my own dir such as /opt or /sw and never in /usr/local, so that upgrades would leave my software alone).

However, as i understand it, in the DMG world this is not possible? DO all of you keep reinstalling mysql etc after each upgrade or do you have a smoother solution ?

Anyway, i found my data in the /Previous Systems folder and copied back, but i dont know what else is lost.... Suggestions welcome.
