Problem+fix: mysql won't start after 0.7.3 upgrade

Postby jorann » 22. August 2008 14:26

i have a problem and found a solution!

what xampp cp says:

Starting XAMPP for MacOS X 0.7.3...
XAMPP: Starting Apache with SSL (and PHP5)...
XAMPP: Starting MySQL...
XAMPP: Starting ProFTPD...
sudo: /Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/bin/mysql.server: command not found
XAMPP for MacOS X started.

what a ls -al says:

lrwxr-xr-x 1 root admin 70 22 aug 15:01 mysql.server -> /Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/bin/xamppfiles/share/mysql/mysql.server

THIS IS WRONG! it should point to:

open a shell and
macbook-van-joran-de-waaij:bin jorandewaaij$ cd /Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/bin/
macbook-van-joran-de-waaij:bin jorandewaaij$ sudo rm mysql.server
macbook-van-joran-de-waaij:bin jorandewaaij$ sudo ln /Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/share/mysql/mysql.server /Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/bin/mysql.server

I hope this helps someone sometime!
