I am trying to do as you've instructed but I get a message that says ERROR 1049: Unknown database 'mysql'. Any clues?

    Welcome to Darwin!
    You have new mail.
    [localhost:~] mdhowes% mysql -umdhowes -p mysql
    Enter password:
    ERROR 1045: Access denied for user: 'mdhowes@localhost' (Using password: YES)
    [localhost:~] mdhowes% mysql -uroot -p mysql
    Enter password:
    ERROR 1045: Access denied for user: 'root@localhost' (Using password: YES)
    [localhost:~] mdhowes%

    Any Ideas? Personally I think it was a bum install on my behalf
    Thanx in advance

      I don't know but maybe you had my problem. I just posted a thank you to gaga1. his advice helped me. I had to try it 2 times as I had run mysqladmin at one time trying to fix up my problem and had changed the password to my system admin password on my machine. so the second time I tried that and I found that it had been changed. if that don't work I'm at a loss. check through the online documentation at http://www.mysql.com/doc/en/

      Good Luck.
