The MySQL Daemon must now be enabled / disabled in rc.conf.
See the script for details.
What does this mean? Make sure the following line is listed in /etc/rc.conf:
I've noticed a lot of ports that I use have started adding the
requirement above. Make sure to read /usr/ports/UPDATING every time you
upgrade or install ports.
Also, any time a script in /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ doesn't work, read the
script. From the /usr/local/etc/rc.d/mysql-server.sh script:
# Add the following line to /etc/rc.conf to enable mysql:
# mysql_enable (bool): Set to "NO" by default.
# Set it to "YES" to enable MySQL.
# mysqllimits_enable (bool): Set to "NO" by default.
# Set it to yes to run `limits $limits_args`
# just before mysql starts.
# mysqllimits_args (str): Default to "-e -U mysql"
# Arguments of pre-start limits run.
