Making a script to start and stop mySQL.
I manually installed mySQL 5.1 so I can't use the pref pane that I would normally get when installing mySQL as a installer package. So I would like to make two scripts (".start" and ".stop") that will live in my home folder, so I can quickly start and stop them when open terminal. I kinda have an idea on how to make it but I don't know how to have the script enter my admin password when it is prompted (or if thats even possible).
the two commands to start and stop it are as follows:
sudo launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.mysql.mysqld.plist
sudo launchctl unload -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.mysql.mysqld.plist
EDIT: Nevermind I think I figured it out, Just had to change some permissions.
EDIT #2: So they work just fine but now I have that natural feeling to make it better. I currently have two scripts, one for starting, and one for stopping. How would I go about rolling them into one single script called ".mysql" and it will test if the mySQL server is already running (or not running) then execute the needed command. Do any of you know what is returned if one of these commands failed to execute?
I would think that I could use
