launchd doesn't launch mysql

Postby zargnut » 06. April 2011 04:31


I followed the instructions listed for using lingon to install a launch daemon to start xampp....

I executed the command /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/xampp start
Set it as a user daemon
Set it to run every startup
Rebooted machine.

Apache started fine, MySQL did not. I executed the command from a terminal prompt and got this response:

Code: Select all
$ /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/xampp start
Starting XAMPP for Mac OS X 1.7.3...
You need to be root to perform this action.

Is there any way to change permissions so it starts using the launch daemon. The command works with sudo, but is there another way? Even when I click the XAMPP controls button to start the server, I have to enter the admin password.

Hi Dan,

you can launch XAMPP at system start of Mac OS X. In this case Apache and MySQL will run all the time and no user must start XAMPP himself. No admin password is needed for this.
Please look at the script viewtopic.php?f=29&t=42595&p=167672

Return to XAMPP for Mac OS X
