    installing and configuring mysql on os x 10.4.11

    Have tried the universal dmg file and following the guide on there site with regards to using terminal to set the root password by using the command

    mysqladmin -u root password 'newpassword'

    and I can get onto the logon page of myphpadmin but I can not logon using no password or even the newpassword set prior.

    apache and php work as configured those earlier.

    Just need some help with getting mysql to work on os x as it would be nice to use mysql with php on os x.

    Not really sure where I am going wrong ?

    Yep. MAMP is the way to go for this. If you have compiled MySQL and PHP from source though it can obviously offer some things that a packaged version can't (and you learn some stuff too). Did you enter the path to your MySQL before the password command?

    /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqladmin

    Or you could add this path to your PATH environment variable

    /usr/local/mysql/bin

    Log in to MySQL as root:

    mysql -u root -p
    Password:

    and that gets you to the correct prompt.

    So, in conclusion, unless you have entered the path to the mysql/bin directory in your PATH environment variable, you need to type that in before trying to set the password using the command you tried.

    HTH

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    I didnt try this part :

    you could add this path to your PATH environment variable

    /usr/local/mysql/bin

    However when I use phpmyadmin and try to logon I get the following error that is attached as per screenshot.

    Also when I used the universal installer for mysql it never gave me a chance to set a root password and I have tried the commands to set one but with no success.

    btw MAMP is pretty nice although its bugging me that I can get apache and php to work fine but not mysql doh !

    Re: installing and configuring mysql on os x 10.4.11

    Followed that guide but am stuck on this bit:

    Setting the Path

    Do not skip this step! Most everything else will fail if you do.

    Mac OS X, like other UNIX systems, uses something called a path to determine where it should look for applications on the command line (that is, when you’re using the Terminal app). The path is actually an environment variable, set by a special file that’s automatically executed when you open a new Terminal window.

    To see if the path has been set properly, we can check the contents of the .bash_login file (the special file hidden in our home folder) for a PATH line using a text editor. TextMate, TextWrangler, BBEdit, and vi are all perfectly good options. To open the file with TextMate, for example, we can type:

    mate ~/.bash_login

    yes i did install textmate first before i did that command
