I am having trouble getting the newest version of MySql-5.5.8 to startup on my Snow Leopard, 64-bit Intel arch., iMac and am wondering if i screwed-up the installation process or did not follow direction right:
I downloaded the MacOSX dmg package mysql-5.5.8-osx10.6-x86_64.dmg
and ran the installer, but did not install the Preference Pane as instructed in documentation.
However, here's where i get confused you recently stated that,
you no longer need to compile MySQL. Which is excellent news as it simplifies the setup and a lot of the problems I see here from users.
So installed MySQL but do i now skip your "Compiling MySQL 5.1.x in 64 bits mode on Snow Leopard" instructions in the documentation?
I created the .bash_profile file and placed it in my home directory to be able to use MySQL commands from the Terminal but now something called .bash_profile.swp as showed up there too and seems to be messing something up as i cannot access MySQL from the Terminal saying it
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)
Sorry it did not like the weird characters inside the .bash_profile.swp file so i zapped the gremlins and will try again:
U3210#"! Utpad"export PATH="$PATH:/usr/local/mysql/bin"
Zelda, please use an editor like vi to change it. The .swp file and the strange characters are usually left there by your editor.
Please read http://diymacserver.com/2011/01/08/first-attempt-at-using-mysql-5-5-x/ as well indicating all the effects of using 5.5.x has on the rest of the installation instructions.
