Question:The mysql install instructions tell me to create a new group 'mysql' and a user 'mysql'. But the suggested (standard unix) command groupadd does not work on my BSD system?
Answer:You need to run the following commands. Use tool pw to add groups and users, and notice the reverse order of arguments in the command to add a user.
