I believe I may have found the solution, works for me so far.

The instructions:
Create a file called com.mysql.mysql.plist in /Library/LaunchDaemons

The file should have like this code (without the horizontal lines above and below):


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "">;
<plist version="1.0">


After reating that file, open Terminal and submit the following commands:
sudo chown root /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.mysql.mysql.plist
sudo chgrp wheel /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.mysql.mysql.plist
sudo chmod 644 /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.mysql.mysql.plist

And last command:
sudo launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.mysql.mysql.plist

Then restart computer and check if the MySql server is autostarted.
Worked for me.
