Dependencies

Ports

MySQL installation through the ports system requires cmake and libaio to be installed first, or else installing MySQL will not complete. libaio requires cmake as well, so be sure to install cmake first.

# cd /usr/ports/opt/cmake
# pkgmk -d -i

# cd /usr/ports/opt/libaio
# pkgmk -d -i

User

MySQL requires the mysql user and group to exist prior to successful installation. Create them before insattling mysql via ports.

# getent group mysql || /usr/sbin/groupadd -g 46 mysql
# getent passwd mysql || /usr/sbin/useradd -g mysql -u 46 -d /var/lib/mysql -s /bin/false mysql
# /usr/bin/passwd -l mysql

Installing from ports

# cd /usr/ports/opt/mysql
# pkgmk -d -i
# mysql_install_db --user=mysql
