    Lenz tutorial - installing mysql!!

    Hi all

    I am following PL tutorial on a Mac (Leopard)

    Frustrating because I can't get past even the mySQL installation stage. I don't know if the software package has changed since this was written, but the downloads at http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/ aren't like "mysql-standard-version-osxversion-platform.dmg"...

    Anyway I downloaded the x86 version anyways, and installed. The command "$ sudo /usr/local/bin/mysqld_safe5" doesn't do anything. That directory wasn't created by the installation.

    All rather annoying as I can't progress until I've sorted this out!

    Please help!

    Also - am I best hunting down the ROR versions he uses in this? I am following the PDF, not the book.

    I want to learn as quickly as possible.

    You want the 'package format' download, just above the one you downloaded. Having said that, I downloaded and installed the .dmg file but have exactly the same error.

    I've just noticed your later posts so you obviously sorted something out. Could you tell me how you got past the MySQL error? Thanks.

    I installed the dmg that makes mysql start automatically every time the computer is started. I then restarted. The program will then run in the background. To get into the mysql prompt it was sudo /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql -u root -p

    hope this helps
