I recently installed MAMP on our server in order to launch a Wordpress site. Though everything is working fine I am not the computer's main user, something which results in long downtime when it has to be rebooted for maintenance.
I was looking for a way to automatically load MAMP on start-up, regardless of who logs in. This lead me to run a script for loading the Apache and MySQL servers on start-up, using the files startApache.sh and startMysql.sh located in Applications/MAMP/bin. I found that the Apache server could be loaded from any admin user with no problem. The MySQL server however will only start when I log-in with my own account (the one under which the installation took place).
Being able to run these scripts without being prompted for a password would be a plus, but it is more important that any admin can start the MySQL server.
I'd appreciate any help you can give me.
