    mySQL doesn't come installed, but you can download it:

    http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/4.1.html

    Its been awhile since I installed it but it was pretty simple, just follow the directions. I haven't had to mess with since I installed it, it has just worked...

    Did you manage to find the file to download from that link? There are seperate versions for the major OS X revisions, if you can just get that then it will practically install itself.

    Have you tried restarting?

    Go to terminal and type /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqladmin, see if it takes you into SQL options

    In terminal try: sudo /Library/StartupItems/MySQLCOM/MySQLCOM start

    If you can go: /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql in the terminal and you get to the sql command line, then it is running.

    Alright, i did the command line to start it. It says starting server, then in the MySQL pane its still stopped.

    Then when i try to access the second command, i get
    Error 2002.Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (61)
