Mac: Installing mySQL in Leopard

Filed in php | software Leave a comment

phew! mySQL is finally working on my Mac OS X 10.5

Leopard comes with Apache and PHP installed but you will need to start Apache
by opening terminal and run:
apachectl -k start

to enable php
refer to Foundation PHP

to auto start apache, go to “System Preference” and under “Sharing”, check on “Web Sharing” this will auto start Apache on bootup

to install mySQL, the pretty challenging part here.
if not done correctly, u probably will get permission error on data, failure to start automatically etc.
jus follow the instruction here:
Installing MySQL on Leopard –
will archieve the tutorial here when i can find more time.
