How to Install MySQL on MacOS

To install MySQL on macOS, you can use Homebrew, which is a popular package manager for macOS. Here are the steps to install MySQL using Homebrew:

  1. Install Homebrew:

    If you don't have Homebrew installed, you can install it by running the following command in your terminal:

                        /bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL"

  2. Install MySQL:

    Once Homebrew is installed, you can use it to install MySQL. Run the following commands in your terminal:

                        brew update
                        brew install mysql                    

  3. Start MySQL Server:

    After the installation is complete, you can start the MySQL server with the following command:

                        brew services start mysql

    This command will start the MySQL server and configure it to start automatically on system startup.

  4. Secure MySQL Installation (Optional):

    It is recommended to run the MySQL secure installation script to improve the security of your MySQL installation. This script will prompt you to set a root password, remove anonymous users, disallow root login remotely, and remove the test database. Run the following command and follow the instructions:


    Follow the prompts to configure MySQL based on your preferences.

  5. Access MySQL:

    You can access the MySQL command-line interface by typing the following command and entering your password when prompted:

                        mysql -u root -p

    Replace root with your MySQL username if you have chosen a different username during installation.

That's it! You should now have MySQL installed and running on your macOS system. Remember to consult the MySQL documentation for further configuration and management options: MySQL Documentation.
