MySQL Question

MacOSX: autostart mysql on boot

I just installed mysql in terminal through homebrew.

Now when I try to connect to mysql it fails, but after I run

it works..

So what I need to do now is run mysqld when I boot my Mac.

I've searched Google for
mysqld autoload at startup
etc. but couldn't find the right answer.

Hope someone can point me in the right direction.. Thanks!

brew info mysql gives you the instructions for loading MySQL at startup, but here's all you need to do:

mkdir -p ~/Library/LaunchAgents
cp `brew --prefix mysql`/*mysql*.plist ~/Library/LaunchAgents/
launchctl load -w ~/Library/LaunchAgents/*mysql*.plist
