I got all of the other server stuff running from these good articels, unfortunally this one is teasing me :-(

I cant get passed the chown command, i used the packed version to install mysql nd not the source, but it just goes wrong :-(

To start mysqld at boot time you have to copy support-files/mysql.server
to the right place for your system

This is done with:
./bin/mysqladmin -u root -p password 'new-password'
./bin/mysqladmin -u root -h localhost -p password 'new-password'
See the manual for more instructions.

You can start the MySQL daemon with:
cd . ; ./bin/safe_mysqld &

You can test the MySQL daemon with the benchmarks in the 'sql-bench' directory:
cd sql-bench ; run-all-tests

Please report any problems with the ./bin/mysqlbug script!

    Does anyone know what is causing this error and how to correct the problem? I've followed the steps out lined here VERY CAREFULLY as well as Marc Marc Liyanage's instructions which accompany his installer .pkg.

    I've removed the installation several times and have deleted and created the MySQL User several times as well, but I keep getting this error, which just craps out everything.

    Please advise. I've spent three days on this thing and have read documentation from all over the place. I lost and very tired of this.

      hi there - i had the same frustration for two days but solved the problem by updating the developer's tools on my mac os 10.2 computer completely - you need to install the August 2002 update especially. Then I compiled the source for mysql and followed the instructions at Apple's Developer site on MySQL installation.
