MySQL start/stop/restart in Mac OS X

- by Oleg Ivanchenko

How to start/stop/restart MySQL in Mac OS X? Very easy!

In OS X Yosemite / El Capitan (MySQL post 5.7) run in terminal:

sudo launchctl load -F /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.oracle.oss.mysql.mysqld.plist

Note: This is a persistent setting which means that MySQL will automatically start on the next OS X start.

sudo launchctl unload -F /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.oracle.oss.mysql.mysqld.plist

In OS X pre Yosemite (MySQL pre 5.7) run in terminal:

 sudo /usr/local/mysql/support-files/mysql.server start
 sudo /usr/local/mysql/support-files/mysql.server stop
 sudo /usr/local/mysql/support-files/mysql.server restart

Quite easy :-)

Postfix restart in Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion

- by admin

Actually it is no so easy to restart Postfix in Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion like in Linux :-)

However you can restart Postfix by plist unload / reload:
sudo launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/org.postfix.master.plist
sudo launchctl load System/Library/LaunchDaemons/org.postfix.master.plist

By the way, if you have a problem with Postfix, look at this article: Cannot send mail in Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion
