Introduction: How to Make a World of Warcraft Private Server on a Mac! 10.5.7+ Only

Because of the update to 3.2.2 for MacPack requires Mac OSX 10.6... I have made this for the people that still have 10.5.7!

Patch 3.1.3 only...

Step 1: Downloads

MacPack
mac.softpedia.com/progDownload/Mac-Pack-WoW-Private-Server-Download-37731.html

 DOWNLOAD "EXTERNAL MIRROR 2 - LEOPARD" OR ELSE THE DOWNLOAD WILL BE FOR SNOW LEOPARD!!!

Navicat Lite
http://www.navicat.com/download/download.html

MySQL
mysql.he.net/Downloads/MySQL-5.1/mysql-5.1.44-osx10.5-x86_64.dmg
This contains the .prefPane that you need.

Step 2: Install MacPack 13.1!

 One of the easiest steps in the Instructable! It is self explanatory.

Step 3: Start MySQL

1. Go to your System Preferences.
2. Go to MySQL.
3. Start MySQL.

Step 4: Make a New Navicat Connection

1. Open up Navicat.
2. Go to Connection and click MySQL.
3. Use the information in the picture.
4. Test Connection.
5. The connection should be successful.

Step 5: Start the Server!

1. Open Terminal.
2. Copy this:
cd /arcemu/server/bin
3. Paste it in the Bash.
4. Copy this:
./arcemu-logonserver
5. Paste it in the Bash.

That should have made it so you can logon. But now without running the next command, you cant connect to the server.

1. Press "Command + N"
This should have opened a new bash.
2. Do the same exact thing as the other command but this time instead of running "arcemu-logonserver" use this command:
./arcemu-world

Step 6: Change Realmlist and Connect!

1. Find your realmlist.wtf in the World of Warcraft folder.
2. Change the text in it to: 
Set Realmlist 127.0.0.1
3. Save it.
4. Logon to WoW with this account:
Username: Epic
Password: Epic
5. ENJOY!!!!

    Hello the SQL link doesn't work you might want to check it thanks ^^

    hi, when i try to open mysql, it pop up a msg saying mysql will not work on intel based mac, can you help?

    Start MySQL:
    download: http://rpm.scl.rs/mysql/Downloads/MySQL-5.1/mysql-5.1.44-osx10.5-x86_64.dmg
    Install: mysql-5.1.44-osx10.5-x86_64 AND MySQLStartupItem.
    Open: MySQL.prefPane.

    Have fun =)

    (Sorry my english ist not good. For english and germany help: hi.matteo@gmail.com)

    I did everything that you said to do above, but at the end of both terminal windows it said "Connection failed due to: `Unknown database 'macpack'`" any advice?

    That would be in Navicat. Under logon section you go to accounts. From there it is pretty self explanatory.

    ik this is old, but i hope you still follow... when i logon it says unable to validate game version... please help?

    Is your WoW version 3.1.3 and not 3.3.3?

    do you mean the macpack or the actual game?

    The actual game. Also with 3.3.5 today. I would keep an extra copy.
