FAQ: MySQL and x64 MacOS

I installed Sawmill on a 64-bit (x64) Mac, and now it says, "This profile uses a MySQL database, but MySQL is not enabled in this build." Why?

Short Answer

MySQL does not currently work on x64 MacOS.

Long Answer
Because there is not a current version of MySQL available for x64 MacOS, it is not possible to build or use MySQL databases on x64 MacOS with Sawmill. When a x64 MacOS version of MySQL becomes available (from the makers of MySQL), we will add support in Sawmill. For now, use the x86 version of Sawmill, which will run on x64 MacOS, and can use MySQL.
