Useful Apache 2 and MySQL 5 service aliases for MacPorts

Those are some aliases I use to start, stop and restart Apache 2 and MySQL on my MacPorts installation done with the installation script I made some time ago. You have to edit “~/.bash_profile” file and add those lines:

alias mysql5start='sudo /opt/local/etc/LaunchDaemons/org.macports.mysql5/mysql5.wrapper start'
alias mysql5stop='sudo /opt/local/etc/LaunchDaemons/org.macports.mysql5/mysql5.wrapper stop'
alias mysql5restart='sudo /opt/local/etc/LaunchDaemons/org.macports.mysql5/mysql5.wrapper restart'

alias apache2start='sudo /opt/local/etc/LaunchDaemons/org.macports.apache2/apache2.wrapper start'
alias apache2stop='sudo /opt/local/etc/LaunchDaemons/org.macports.apache2/apache2.wrapper stop'
alias apache2restart='sudo /opt/local/etc/LaunchDaemons/org.macports.apache2/apache2.wrapper restart'

Then execute “source ~/.bash_profile” to load the new aliases or just open a new terminal window.
