    I just did what they suggested at golive6...
    I deleted the mysql account .... till now everything was fine..

    BUT.. then I wanted to create the new sql account...

    and now Symstem tells me that I can´t create a mysql account because the name mysql is not available...

    Anybody any idea???

    This drives me crazy...

      the existing mysql user only needs to be removed and recreated for OSX 10.1. 10.2 ships with a default mysql user installed (which is why one would be unable to create a new one). This step in the MySQL setup is no longer necessary.

      Just making a note as i hit the same problem and the posts didn't really resolve my initial questions (as they are pre-10.2).
