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...

Supplies

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!!!!

    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.

    If it gives you a warning that it will cancel the action in progress or whatever it is (Never did this in a while. =P) then do not close it.

    LOGIN SERVER DOWN

    I hope this info helps you to help me.

     The problem could be is that you could have quit Terminal after you turned on the Login Server.

     Because Mac does not have a repair kit, the only known way to downgrade is to reinstall the whole client.

     I have followed the instructions carefully, and I believe the problem is in the Terminal. I did everything you specified however it did not work and wrote back with "no suitable image found" and "did find but wrong architecture". 

    Can you please help. Also why login with "Epic/Epic"? 

    PS: Epic/Epic currently does not work.

    Please help.

     First of all, what exactly didn't work?

    Secondly, with terminal, one the world and logon server is started you can just close those 2 windows/tabs. Just make sure you do not quit Terminal.
