Cheers,

i have the following problem. As I am new to mac os x and ruby i didn't get along with the installation procedure described in the book. With some help of a thread to how install mysql to os x i then managed to install mysql and start the server. That was yesterday. Today i fire up my mac and i can't seem to use mysql anymore. At the terminal the whereis mysql gives no result and i can't connect or administer mysql. Nothing from the book seems to work. I am very unexperianced at using the terminal so I dont even know where to start. Is there anyone who could give me some help. I realy want to start using ruby on rails. Thank in advance and greetings from germany.
