Link to mysql.sock deleted at reboot

I'm on Mac OS 10.5. How do I get a link from /tmp/mysql.sock to
/opt/.../mysql.sock to stay after reboot?

Is there a better way of doing this, like adding an alias in .profile if
possible, or is it assumed that you never reboot your machine? :slight_smile:

Why don't you use the socket option in database.yml to point to
opt/... ? You can use this setting for development and another for
production. Alternatively create database.mymachine.yml and
database.production.yml and link the right file to database.yml

I could do that, but it's convenient to use /tmp/mysql.sock as other
programs look there first.

Presumably you can configure mysql to put its socket in /tmp rather
than in /opt/...

This might do what you want with the values you want in it:

# recipe 25 from "rails recipes"
