bladx has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi everyone!

I am the 2nd Webmaster at my High School, and my teacher-guy wants me to install mySQL for our school site that I will be working on, and creating throughout this year.

The problem is, I can't figure out how to install mySQL on our machine that will be the server, which is a Mac OS X Server box.

I have searched around the internet for help, but haven't found any *yet*. Does anyone know about this type of thing? Thanks!

Andy Summers

    Well, in the mysql homepage, in the download section there are a binary packages for MacOs X.
    I have never installed it in MacOS X before, but i **supose** that the procedure should be the more or less the same of another Unix variants.
    Dreams they just disapear into the shadows,
    then they become true....

    Marc Liyanage's pages have what you need. There are .pkg installers and startup scripts as well as instructions for installation from source. There's also useful stuff about php and postgresql and, er, ruby.

    The downloads on mysql.com that someone mentioned are _not_ what you want. They're for pre-10 versions of OS X - server 1.x and the public beta. The old OS X server was just a Rhapsody relic and should never have been called that: it has no real relation to the BSD-based server X which is now available.

    nb. i've only done this on client os x: be sure to read the apple docs and make sure you're not trampling on some custom admin script or other.

    i don't think you can have searched very thoroughly, by the way. try this one.

    I don't mean to be rude, but perhaps you should be asking this somewhere else.

      The reason this was posted, is because it IS related to Perl, because I will be using Perl to connect to the mySQL server.

      It is not an off topic post. Nor is it meant to be.

        Sorry, but asking how to install MySQL on Mac OS X is absolutely nothing to do with Perl whatsoever. You might as well ask "what's the best computer to buy" because you use Perl on it, or "what kind of music do you listen to", because you're using Perl to write a cd database. And how on earth did your post get frontpaged? The section is called seekers of Perl wisdom, not seekers of MySQL wisdom.

        update: I just noticed it's not on the front page anymore.
