I had mysql installed on my OS-X machine via macports a while back. I think it ended up conflicting with something I used for a wordpress test site (something like XAMPP), and I wasn't able to reinstall it. I don't remember exactly what happened and I can't find my notes on it, but I remember it being a real pain.
Right now, I have netbeans and XAMPP installed. XAMPP uses it's own mysql server, as does netbeans. Do I need to worry about another mysql installation messing anything up? I really don't want to go through all the trouble I went through last time.
