Help with getting started
Hi, i just bought this book - the ROR Lenz book.
I have a macbook with leopard 10.5.1 - so my ruby and rails is updated past the book versions... ok, but I'm trying to download the mysql and for the life of me, i can't find the standard dmg file... i have found a community download 5.0.45 but its a tar.gz ?????? what do i do with this, and is this the right path?
Help - I'd like to get started with learning
thanks but a little more help????
Hey, thanks for the forum help. i have another question though. I've gone to the link you specified to download the .dmg file for mysql, however having installed the x86 version (im on an intel mac) i can't get any further with the ruby book, specifically to test that i have mysql or to log in..
here's what the book says...
$ sudo /usr/local/bin/mysqld_safe5
--- i get a password prompt then --- command not found
i then read down the sitepoint forum and found a helpful(?) prompt..
sudo /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql -u root -p
---i enter this and get a password prompt but then this returns....
error 1045 (28000): access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
sorry to be a boon, but im really excited about learning ruby and this just sux so far..
