    Installing MySQL on Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5

    Hi,

    I'm reading PHP & MySQL Novice to Ninja (5th edition).

    I've installed MySQL in Mac OS X Lion (10.7.5) but when I go to the terminal (following instructions in Appendix A) and write:

    "sudo /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld_safe", I get this message:

    "WARNING: Improper use of the sudo command could lead to data loss
    or the deletion of important system files. Please double-check your
    typing when using sudo. Type "man sudo" for more information.

    To proceed, enter your password, or type Ctrl-C to abort.

    Password:"

    And I didn't continue.

    The version of MySQL that I've downloaded is "Mac OS X ver. 10.6 (x86, 64-bit), DMG Archive" and my processor is 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7.

    Previously I installed XAMPP and worked fine and then uninstalled it by moving it to the bin.

    Thanks,

    Carolina.

    That's just a warning, to let you know, that you are executing command as root. I think it pops up only first time when using sudo, later on it should only request the password. To start mysql, you should continue and enter the password.
