Today I will be showing you how to make a WoW private server on a mac! I am the guy F1racer3028 from youtube.com/f1racer3028 Also today we will be using MacPack to install this.

FORUMS.MAC-FUN.COM = NEW SUPPORT AREA!!!

Step 1: Download MacPack

Download MacPack from here. After you download it open it and run the installer.

Step 2: Get MAMP Running.

Now lets get MAMP running. Open up MAMP from your applications folder. Hopefully both lights will be green. If they are not please open MAMP PRO. It is right next to MAMP. Always open MAMP Pro if the lights do not go on. You can hide those if you want. Here are correct settings for MAMP and MAMP Pro in the pics below.

Step 3: Open Navicat Lite

Ok now since MAMP is running open up navicat lite in your applications folder. Click new connection. and enter what i enter in the pictures.

Step 4: Test the Connection.

Hit test connection. Look at pics...

Step 5: Connect to the Database.

Look at pics again.

Step 6: Start Server

Now open up the folders specified below in the pic.

Step 7: Server Starting

Read the pics once again.

Step 8: Make Someone a GM

Pics once again.

Step 9: Make TBC

Step 10: Set Realmlist and GO!

Also to get it public click here and find the video on the channel.

You can for example play on a WoW 4.3.4 Cataclysm server like:

http://www.elune-gaming.com/

That is instant 85 and offers great PvP & PvE

when i test the conntection, it says:

Connection Failed
Can't connect to MySQL server on '127.0.0.1' (61)

What should i do?
Before i entered the Port as 8889 it was 3306. does that change anything?

There should be a file on the desktop called libmysqlclient_r.15.dylibthat is included with macpack. Open and install it.

i figured out this part... go to your mangosx look up at the menu bar on top of your screen look under mangosx and there should be a "install libmysqlclient_r.15.dylib" install that.. but thats as far as i've gotten atm
