hello, i have a macbook running mac os x, version 10.6.1. I have apached setup and
am running php as well. I recently downloaded and installed mysql and mysql gui tools.
I tried to connect to mysql via mysql administrator and got the following error:
connection error
could not connect to mysql instance at localhost
error can't connect to local mysql server through socket 'tmp/mysql.sock'(2) (code2002)

I'm a developer and have picked up a mac to begin coding on the mac. I have a VAMP running and
it works great; just want to figure out how to get mysql running on the mac.

QUOTE Thanks

Have a look at

MySQL Server

It doesn't appear as if you have started MySQL.
