Well, I figured it would be prudent to make it mimic the previous method to
make it all work correctly as it did before. Well, now I have run into a few
strange things.

Mimicking the _mysql user works:

Phat-G5:~ steffan$ sudo su -m _mysql
sh-3.2$ /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld_safe
Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /usr/local/mysql/var


Using the tip for launchd does not seem to work.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN"
"http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
    <key>KeepAlive</key>
    <true/>
    <key>Label</key>
    <string>com.mysql.mysqld</string>
    <key>Program</key>
    <string>/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld_safe</string>
    <key>RunAtLoad</key>
    <true/>
    <key>UserName</key>
    <string>_mysql</string>
    <key>WorkingDirectory</key>
    <string>/usr/local/mysql</string>
</dict>
</plist>

I get no daemon running under ps -U _mysql when I use
sudo launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.mysql.mysqld.plist
To launch it.

Anything I am missing here?



Thanks

Steffan
