    I downloaded mysql-5.0.87-osx10.4-powerpc.dmg and thought I had installed it (at least it said I had). I went to System Preferences, and at the bottom of the screen is a MySQL icon in the 'Other' catagory. I clicked the "Start MySQL", and now it tells me that 'The MySQL Server Instance is running'. I clicked on 'Automatically Start MySQL Server on Startup' and rebooted. I checked again in System Preferences, and it says that MySQL is running.
    However, when I try to start phpMyAdmin, I get
    Welcome to phpMyAdmin
    Probably reason of this is that you did not create configuration file. You might
    want to use setup script to create one.
    MySQL said:
    #2002 - The server is not responding (or the local MySQL server's socket is not
    correctly configured)
    I've tried several times to create a configuration file, but nothing seems to work.

    Any help available? Anyone got any ideas?

    Have you checked your phpMyAdmin configuration to ensure it's pointing to your install? Can you login into MySQL from the command line?

    I found a tutorial about setting it up and copied their suggested file. Added my username and password, and it works quite well now.
