4.5 Installing the Service Manager on Mac OS X

On Mac OS X, there are three installation modes: osx, text, and unattended. For more information on this topic see Section 8.1, “Unattended Installation”. The text mode installation for Mac OS X is identical to text installation under Unix. For text mode installation instructions see Section 4.3, “Installing the Service Manager on Unix and Linux”.

Installing the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager on Mac OS X requires at least Mac OS X 10.7.

To install using the GUI (osx) installation, follow these instructions:

  1. Double-click the MySQL Monitor installer. In the Language Selection dialog, select the language to use for the installer and then click OK.

  2. The remainder of the installation sets up the installation location and the main configuration parameters required by MySQL Enterprise Service Manager. Click Next to continue.

  3. Select the installation directory where you want the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager components installed. By default on Mac OS X the directory is /Applications/mysql/enterprise/monitor. Click the button next to the installation directory field to select a directory using the File chooser, or type the directory manually. Click Next to continue.

  4. Configure the options that set the network ports used by the Tomcat server. For more information, see Section 4.1, “Service Manager Installation Common Parameters”. Click Next to continue.

  5. Configure the repository settings, which typically means setting the user name, password and port for the bundled MySQL server that stores the information and statistics for your installation. For more information about using a non-bundled MySQL server, see Section 4.1, “Service Manager Installation Common Parameters”. Click Next to continue.

  6. Next, start the installation process. Click Next to continue.

  7. Once the installation is completed, you receive information on how to uninstall MySQL Enterprise Service Manager, which is by executing uninstall.app from your installation directory. Click Next to continue.

  8. At this point you will receive a warning that reads as follows:

    WARNING: To improve security, all communication with the Service Manager uses SSL. Because only a basic self-signed security certificate is included when the Service Manager is installed, it is likely that your browser will display a warning about an untrusted connection. Please either install your own certificate, or add a security exception for the Service Manager URL to your browser. See the documentation for more information

    Click Next to continue.

  9. To complete the installation and set up your MySQL Enterprise Service Manager, log in to the User Interface. You can do this automatically by leaving the box checked on the final window before clicking Finish. To skip loading the User Interface at this time, uncheck the box and click Finish.

The first part of your installation is now complete. To continue with the configuration and first-time setup of MySQL Enterprise Service Manager, see Section 4.8, “MySQL Enterprise Service Manager Configuration Settings and Advisor Installation”.
