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.

pw groupadd mysql
pw useradd mysql -g mysql
cd /usr/local
ln -s /root/peter/mysql-5.0.45-freebsd6.0-i386 mysql
cd mysql
chown -R mysql .
chgrp -R mysql .
scripts/mysql_install_db --user=mysql
chown -R root .
chown -R mysql data
bin/mysqld_safe --user=mysql &
