    Unhappy Unanswered: Start the MySQL server Issues (help)

    I'm an extreme rookie at this, So bare with me. I've installed Mysql for OS X and I'm having a hard time starting the server with (shell> bin/mysqld_safe --user=mysql & ) an I get the following error (bin/mysqld_safe: Permission denied)

    But I can connect to it anonymously
    I've tried almost everything, Any Ideas?

    I just need to get in to create users and start building a couple databases but I dont have the proper permission.....

    There is no user of mysql. the anonymous account and root account are the ones set up by default both without passwords.

    check the manual for setting passwords and granting users and users permissions.
