Installing MySQL 5.5.8 on Mac OS X Headache

MySQL We Have A Problem

Argh... So I wanted to update my internal server to the latest and greatest version of MySQL. I downloaded the nice Mac OS X ver. 10.6 (x86, 64-bit), DMG Archive installer package they have and low and behold, MySQL won't start-up!

Well, no need to worry. Seems to be an issue with the installer package. To see if you have the same problem I'm having, do the install and then fire up ye ole terminals and type:

sudo /usr/local/mysql/support-files/mysql.server start
Password: XXXXXX

If you see a fun message that looks like this:

/usr/local/mysql/support-files/mysql.server: line 256: my_print_defaults: command not found
Starting MySQL
ERROR! Couldn't find MySQL server (./bin/mysqld_safe)

Then you have the same problem I'm having. Here's how you can fix it.

Installing Railo 3.1 On Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)

A Step-By-Step Guide To Install Railo Server 3.1 On Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)

This week I went ahead and purchased a Mac Mini to replace my very old Apple G4 server. One of the first things I had to do was to get Railo 3.1 to run on it. You may recall, I already created a nice blog entry called Installing Railo 3.1 On Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard), to help people get Railo running on Mac OS X 1.5. I really didn't think that installing it on 10.6 (Snow Leopard) would be that difficult, but I was wrong.

First of all, the original source of my guide was based off of another blog entry by Luis Majano. But apparently, his website had changed, and as of this writing, was not even working. I remembered he had a nice entry on enabling 64 bit mode when installing, but without his reference, I was SOL and on my own. But fear not my fellow Railo fans, because I spent a better part of a day figuring it out.
