VMware ESXi 6.0 available as OS option at signup. We have been testing VMware ESXi 6 since last summer. While the final ‘GA’ version was announced early in February, it just recently was available to the public. This version will install without any modifications on the Late-2012 Mac mini or Late-2013 Mac Pro models. Only the Mac Pro is supported by VMware and considered VMware compatible. We have many customers with stable ESXi deployments on Mac minis. ESXi is a lightweight hypervisor that replaces OS X as the main OS and allows...

Going to new heights.

Going to new heights. Later this year marks our 5 year anniversary at Mac Mini Vault. We’ve been working on a new website design and wanted to launch it in a big way. In the past 5 years we’ve had many fun projects like our Apple TV Webserver and telling our story in a video. Almost a year ago we had the idea to send a Mac mini up above 100,000 feet for some great photos and video shots. After extensive research we partnered up with John from nearspaceballooning.com. Our goal was to launch near our...

Install MySQL on OS X 10.10 Yosemite.

Install MySQL on OS X 10.10 Yosemite. A few years ago we started writing scripts that help install MySQL on OS X. In OS X 10.6 and prior, MySQL was included with the “Server” version of the OS. With the move to Server.app, Apple removed MySQL. Which coincidentally is not long after Oracle acquired Sun which included MySQL. MySQL had a GUI installer for OS X that worked well, but was missing a few things that made it ready to work with Apache/PHP out of the box. Our installer took care of those items as well as set the...
