On Mac OS X, there are three installation modes:
unattended. For more information on this topic
see Section 5.4, “Unattended Installation”. The
text mode installation for Mac OS X is
text installation under Unix. For
text mode installation instructions see
Section 5.2.2, “Installing the Service Manager on Unix and Linux”.
Installing the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager on Mac OS X requires at least Mac OS X 10.6, and an existing installation of Java. The minimum required version is 1.5.0_7. If this version is not installed on your machine, you can download it from Apple.
For reasons of backwards compatibility, Mac OS X is usually
installed with multiple versions of Java. When installing in
osx mode, version 1.5.0_7 must be the default
version. Upon installation, Java 1.5.0_7 sets itself as the
default, so this is usually not a problem.
If you have changed the default Java version, you can reset it in
your environment, or you can install the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager in
text mode, setting the environment variables to
point to the correct version of Java. To install in
text mode, find the
installbuilder file in the
Contents/MacOS directory immediately below
directory. Installing the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager in
text mode is identical to the procedure
described in Section 5.2.2, “Installing the Service Manager on Unix and Linux” with the
minor differences noted above.
To install using the GUI (
follow these instructions:
Double-click the MySQL Monitor installer. In the Language Selection dialog, select the language to use for the installer and then click OK.

With the installation language and Java version selected, 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.
