fixing OS X MySQL

Sometimes OS X MySQL has some launchd problems. You can run the server but you get all sorts of odd messages when you try to access it via server manager. And you just can't get it to quit properly.

Here's a fix:

go to terminal and run:
sudo launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/org.mysql.mysqld.plist

go back to Server Admin and restart mysql

reboot.

Mysqld should be running fine.
