Response to: MySQL User

the existing mysql user only needs to be removed and recreated for OSX 10.1. 10.2 ships with a default mysql user installed (which is why one would be unable to create a new one). This step in the MySQL setup is no longer necessary.

Just making a note as i hit the same problem and the posts didn't really resolve my initial questions (as they are pre-10.2).
