Oct 13th 2009 11:15 pm Mac Os X Snow Leopard and MySQL


I upgraded Mac Os X to the version 10.6.1 and I found that my mysql database stopped working, This is how I fix it:
Open a Terminal and type
sudo ln -s /usr/local/mysql-5.0.51b-osx10.5-x86/* /usr/local/mysql

Then, look for the MySQL icon in the System Preference panel and click it. Let it reopen (as the message says), and that’s it. Mysql is running as it was before upgrading the operative system.

Hope it helps.

    How could you make the System Preferences Pane work for you in the beginning? I have not checked lately, but when I just installed, it could stop but not start the server. I had to start it manually…
