View Full Version : Problem with database mysql

12-10-2009, 07:05 AM
We experiment problems after upgrading to osX 10.5 Leopard and setting up Open Directory. Before that, we had mysql working with databases located in the local node, but now we are unable to make it work with the local databases. Please, can someone help us?

On the machine in question, open Terminal, type in mysql, what is returned?

Hopefully a mysql> prompt.

In my experience, that is the first logical step in mysql troubleshooting.

If you get the mysql prompt, type in "show databases;" and hit enter.

Report back and likely many people can help you from that point.

Best not to upgrade, but to wipe and do a new install.

Be sure to have a backup and I would dump the mysql tables, too.
