    Hello,

    I was following this tutorial (http://www.macromedia.com/devnet/mx/dreamweaver/articles/php_blog1.html) for creating a blog with Dreamweaver. The first step was to intall MySQL (http://www.macromedia.com/devnet/mx/dreamweaver/articles/php_macintosh.html), which I did by installing MySQL from here: http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/4.0.html.

    But something went wrong and the removal instructions provided by the tutorial won't work (I have to remove MySQL to start over). My questions are: 1) how do I remove MySQL so I can start this tutorial over? 2) Is there a better tutorial out there for making the Apache/MySQL/PHP combo work on the Mac as a test server, especially with Dreamweaver? BTW, I have MAMP installed but for some reason it won't work with Dreamweaver.

    Thanks,

    Luis

    No idea on removing MySQL- I run it on my server.

    You might want to consider using LiveJournal. It's basic, but it's free and you wouldn't have to keep your computer running all the time. Plus, MySQL can be tricky to set up (read: be prepared to edit some html code).

    In future get mysql from here , that guy is awesome and the packages are easy to work with.

    There is a thread about removal here that should give you an answer.
