From Terminal, we ran: sudo /Users/[user]/Sites/webmin-1.770/setup.sh and then it was fine. But after a restart, we ran into the same issue where the […]

Our mySQL install kept giving us trouble, even though the install went fine, after restarts the mySQL database would not be available. What fixed it?

We tried to sync and restore on iPhone 3G last night to no avail: “Another sync client is already running” The fix was a permission change to 777 on the “tmp” folder AND its contents. The easiest way to access /tmp is to use the “Go To Folder” menu item in the Finder’s Go menu […]

On two Mac OS X 10.5.8 boxes, we are running Webmin 1.490 and are having issues with the mySQL backup schedule.
