Reinstalling MySQL on Mac 10.7 (Lion)

Had to reinstall MySQL because my mysql install scripts were failing because mysql was unable to drop databases.

Not sure what got misconfigured but I figured it would take less time to just reinstall MySQL.

Steps to re-install MySQL

1. Download latest mysql package from

2. Run install programs

3. Verify MySQL icon added to Preferences Pane
4. Start MySQL on reboot


Now, MySQL is installed and ready to use.
