    FreeBSD + MySQL = Evil

    No matter how many different ways i try, i can never get MySQL working on FreeBSD. Even cPanel can't install it properly! If anyone has any ideas on why MySQL will refuse to work on FreeBSD 4.5 Please respond!

    (PS: I know this post isn't descriptive, but there are just to many problems on why MySQL won't work)

    We run FreeBSD servers and MySQL has no problem running on them. Could the reason be CPanel? I have heard that CPanel has problems running on FreeBSD. Have you tried to install MySQL through FreeBSD's port collections?

    It's rather CPanel + MySQL = Evil
    Try /usr/ports/databases/mysql323-server

    Take MySQL out of the equation and you're Einstein.

    CPanel probably dosent work for BSD.
    BSD rocks and owns all.
    MySQL works PERFECTLY with FreeBSD.
    Cpanel Sucks.
    Cpanel Blows.
    Cpanel is lame.
    By this point im rambling....

    Well, I really shouldn't respond because I got MySQL working on FreeBSD 4.5 without a problem.

    I installed MySQL server from the ports tree, followed the post install instructions, and everything is working fine.
    This space for let.
    Inquire within.
