Auto start MySQL on Mac startup

If enabling “Automatically Start MySQL Server on Startup” does not work then doing below process will fix it.

Open terminal/command line interface (CLI) and run below commands.

  1. run “sudo vi /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.mysql.mysql.plist” and add below code and save the file. If vi does not work then create file “com.mysql.mysql.plist” in “/Library/LaunchDaemons/” and save below code.
    <?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-8″?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC “-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN” “http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd”>
    <plist version=”1.0″>
    <dict>
    <key>KeepAlive</key>
    <true />
    <key>Label</key>
    <string>com.mysql.mysqld</string>
    <key>ProgramArguments</key>
    <array>
    <string>/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld_safe</string>
    <string>
    </array>
    </dict>
    </plist>
  2. sudo chown root:wheel /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.mysql.mysql.plist
  3. sudo chmod 644 /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.mysql.mysql.plist
  4. sudo launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.mysql.mysql.plist

Now restart the system and see that MySQL will be in running mode and no need to manually start.
