Is this on Panther or Jaguar? I just built the mysql dport with +server on Panther yesterday afternoon and had no problems. Also, how up-to-date is your ports tree?

Could you please run:

# cd /path/to/dports/databases/mysql # port clean # script ~/mysql.txt # port -v -d install # exit

Then repost the contents of ~/mysql.txt.

Please update your ports tree and try with the current Portfile. I moved the user/group creation to pre-destroot and before it tries to create a directory that the mysql user owns.

Let me know if that fixes the problem so I can close this bug.
