    Unanswered: My Sql On MAC OSX

    Hi Fellas,

    I am trying to install my very first database on the MAC OSX and i'm having the grief of a lifetime:

    I've typed the following commands and received these results:

    [127:/usr/local/mysql] hebisra% sudo chown -R mysql:mysql data
    [127:/usr/local/mysql] hebisra% sudo ./bin/safe_mysqld --user=mysql &
    [1] 706
    [127:/usr/local/mysql] hebisra% Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /usr/local/mysql/data
    040217 11:06:06 mysqld ended

    I'm not sure what this is telling me..... Could it be shutting me down?

    Also if there is a way to remove MYSQL from command line and doing a completely new install that would be appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.....

    Look in the data directory for a file named the same as your hostname with a ".err" extension. It should give you more information. Also, uninstalling depends upon how you installed it. You could just delete everything under /usr/local/mysql to uninstall, but that might leave some application database on your machine in an invalid state.
