Sample config files can be found in /usr/local/share/mysql. MySQL will
run fine with it's default settings but depending on your requirements
you may need to change them. You can copy one of the suitable sample
files to /var/db/mysql/my.cnf and change it according to your
requirements. You might also want to look at the phpMyAdmin port
/usr/ports/databases/phpmyadmin for a web gui front-end to MySQL where
you can add users and assign permissions with a click of a button.
Otherwise you'll have to do it manually as a previous post mentioned.
