I have successfully installed mysql on my mac, and now on the command-line I can type
which mysql and the mac replies back the expected path.
I would like to get started with the tutorial here. But according to that tutorial, I need to some additional set up before starting that tutorial. The document refers me to the server administration chapter, but this doesn't show my how to perform the remaining setup... it's more like a reference, so I don't know where to get started.
Is there any good document online to show me how to start administering my mysql database so that I can work through the tutorial?
update: If it's imporant, typing
mysql -u root at the command line replies this error:
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)
In case anyone is interested, this is the best mysql tutorial that I've found on the web.
