Hi all,
I have a 10.4 powerpc and I have issues installing MySQL.
I installed a couple of versions and removed them. last installed version is mysql-5.1.40-osx10.4-powerpc.dmg and I still have the same issues, the server wont start with error 255.
to remove previous installed not working versions I used:
sudo rm /usr/local/mysql
sudo rm -rf /usr/local/mysql*
sudo rm -rf /Library/StartupItems/MySQLCOM
sudo rm -rf /Library/PreferencePanes/My*
edit /etc/hostconfig and remove the line MYSQLCOM=-YES-
rm -rf ~/Library/PreferencePanes/My*
sudo rm -rf /Library/Receipts/mysql*
sudo rm -rf /Library/Receipts/MySQL*
sudo rm -rf /private/var/db/receipts/*mysql*

After this I installed a new one
Thank you in advance for any help,
Julian

Just a thought, but how about using something like XAMPP - it comes with MySQL and I have used the database as stand alone without actually starting apache and ftp server.

apache friends - xampp

XAMPP is only good for the sake of testing. To quote them:
Quote:
The default configuration is not good from a securtiy point of view and it's not secure enough for a production environment - please don't use XAMPP in such environment.
Now, if you're only doing local development, something like XAMPP could work.

JulianS, could you post the full error message?

I know that this is embarrassing but looking to get the error message I did
"sudo /Library/StartupItems/MySQLCOM/MySQLCOM start" and guess what? The server started.....
Apologies to all of you to waste your time
Thanks
Julian
