openlp 1.9.8 with mysql backend on MacOsX

Asked by Rastislav Pecik on 2012-02-16


I was trying to set mysql as a backend for songs on Openlp 1.9.8 on MacOS X Lion according to the instructions at I was trying to change the mac confituration file /Users/<user>/Library/Preferences/org.openlp.OpenLP.plist and put there values

<key>db type</key><string>mysql</string>
<key>db username</key><string>UserName</string>
... etc

but unfortunately it does not work. The local sqlite database is still beign loaded. Moreover I think that this part: "(Advanced) Using MySQL or PostgreSQL to store songs part for MacOsX" of wiki is wrong, because org.openlp.OpenLP.plist is a xml file which cannot contain values in the form:

db type = mysql
db username = username
as being stated at the wiki.

My question is, if it is possible to use MySql backend for Mac version of OpenLP as well or that is just for linux and windows version (which I succesfully tested with mysql). If yes, what is the correct configuration settings for Mac? Which configuration file needs to be changed?

Thank you

Technically it should be possible, but we don't have many OS X testers who can verify it for us.
