Trying to set up a testing server & MySQL Problem
Just bought a Macbook Air. I'm trying to set up a testing server on it but I'm stuck at a particular step.
I have apache set up and can reach the Sites folder I created in my home directory.
I have php running as the info.php file I created works.
My issue is with mysql.
I downloaded and installed the latest version from mysql.com and installed it. I installed the preference panel. But is there a guide on creating and maintaining a mysql instance from the command line? Every one I see saying to start by typing mysql in terminal, but it tells me that it's not installed. But the preference panel tells me different. Thanks.

Can you try this in the terminal
As an example, for my current installation, the bin is in /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql

Hmm that command just returns me to the prompt without any information.
However I see:
At the same path on my machine.

Might I recommend MAMP?
There's nothing wrong with the way you are doing it, after the setup it's rock solid. I just find MAMP too easy NOT to use.

I´m not sure what is wrong but in my case i needed to run a script to complete the mysql installation, in the mysql folder i executed this command:
You can start the MySQL daemon with:
cd . ; ./bin/mysqld_safe &
Hope it helps.

Well I downloaded Sequel Pro and was able to connect and create a database and a new user, plus grant permissions. (Bare in mind this is all new to me.)
But I can't connect in Coda2 which is what I'm using for development. Not sure why I can connect in one but not the other. The error I'm getting in Coda is:
I'm trying to connect via MySQL Socket.

Well I figured out how to connect from Coda, I had to connect to /tmp/mysql.sock. Is there a "Hello world" query I can run to make sure I'm connected and it's running?
