Yes, I know. I seem to have great aim when it comes to shooting myself in the foot. ;-) Fortunately, I see no pressing need for me to upgrade or remove MySQL, as the current config is exactly what I need. I'll remember this for next time. BTW, I guess I am not the only one to not be able to install MySQL from ports. I have tried on three different machines all running 4.9 and it never worked. Go figure.
