    Hi all-I am trying to download MySql for my Mac Book Pro, running os 10.5-

    Has this happened to any of you? I go to the MySql.com website, to the downloads page etc. I find the version I need, pick the mirror and then, they say that they need more info from me. I signed up, filled out all of their forms,
    got the email with my user name and password. I went back, signed in and still, everytime I try to download I get a screen telling me that they need more information, and I am presented with the same form that I have filled out before-and, I am totally logged in!

    Help-are there any other places where I can download MySql 5 for os 10.5?
    thnx!

    If its for developing websites try MAMP it provides a SQL server, Apache server and PHP server in one package.

    Wow, a dmg file... I've seen others try to install patched Linux binaries. This is 100% awesome!!!!! Must be the 5.1.34 Community version for those following. I need to add this immediately to my sticky topic of links here on the forum.

    You can get a 64 bit version from there as well.

    indeed, sometimes there is more skill in finding download links than actually using the product you want... ;-)
