    MySQL Configuration = :(

    Intel Imac
    PHP 4.1.1
    Apache 1.3.33

    I need help! I bought a Intel Imac the other day and am trying to set up MySQL. Please be gentle, I don't know much mac lingo or terminal stuff.

    I have succesfully setup a WAMP system several times.

    I've downloaded mysql-standard-5.0.19-osx10.4-i686.dmg, opened it, opened the mysql-standard-5.0.19-osx10.4-i686.pkg and installed without any problems.

    I also installed the MYSQL.prefpane and MySQLStartupitem.pkg

    MySQL is running.

    when I open phpmyadmin in my browser, I get:

    MySQL said: Documentation
    #2002 - The server is not responding (or the local MySQL server's socket is not correctly configured)

    Now, on a windows system i'd edit config files, but I have no idea where they are on the mac, and I don't even know if this is the problem...

    Also, when I try to open the 'data' folder in usr/local/mysql/ I get an error saying that I don't have permission! But it's my computer, and im the only user! Wouldn't I have admin rights???

    Any help would be appreciated.
