    Does anyone know of a SQL database that works with OSX that I do not have to use the terminal to sucessfully install it. I have tried mySQL, Firebird and one more fairly popular databse but I can not remember the name.

    It appears I need to use the termianl to sucessfully set these programs up. I have absoutly know idea how the terminal works. I was wondering if anyone knew of a sql database that I can install without using the terminal. I tried FileMaker but it does not appear that it has a sql editor. If anyone knows of a slq editor that will work with file maker that will work to.

    Thanks for any help

    XAMMPS is the only thing I can think of right now.

    It is a full web server, with SQL and phpMyAdmin. (you can easily enable/disable what you want to run).

    I know it's only in beta for Mac OS X, but it's definitely an awesome app on Windows, so I'd say it's worth a try.
