Re: post installation set up

Hi everyone,

p44 of sample book. After successfully installing mamp (my system is osx10.4) i am not quite sure if i understand the directions. -bash: msqladmin: command not found that is what i get. Anything i missed?

And you all have a happy new year!!!

Hello everyone,

I realize that the question i asked in my last post was really incomplete so let me tell you where i am at:

I have MAMP installed on osx 10.4.1. Seems to be working. Trying to follow the instructions on page 44 of the sample pdf. of the book “Build your own database driven website using PHP & mySQL” where i need to change my password from “root” to my own.

In terminal window when i type: mysqladmin -u root -p password “ownpassword” i get:
Enter password: where i enter ownpassword This is what i keep getting:
mysqladmin: connect to server at ‘localhost’ failed
error: ‘Access denied for user ‘root’@‘localhost’ (using password: YES)’

Please let me know where i go wrong…

Thanking you
