Topic: Newbie Problems configuring MySQL with Rails on OS X Tiger
I have been following the instructions here on this site : http://hivelogic.com/articles/2005/12/0 ysql_tiger so I can install Ruby on Rails.
Prior to following the install guide on the Hivelogic site I downlaoded and installed MacPorts/Darwin Port and set up my profile PATH as described here : http://trac.macosforge.org/projects/mac ngMacPorts
All the set up procedure has worked and I can excecute rails commands when I navigate in terminal to my /User/ directory however I cannot get MySQL to run. Can any kind person help me work out where I have goen wrong?
Below are 2 links to grabs of my terminal windows and my ".profile" and ".bash_login" :
.profile : "export PATH="/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:$PATH
.bash_login : "export PATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/mysql/bin:$PATH""
Grab 1 : All my MySQL files, installed by the dmg file are in /usr/local/ : http://homepage.mac.com/andycet/filechu re%204.png
Grab 2 : All my rails files are in main directory "/" : http://homepage.mac.com/andycet/filechu re%206.png
Any Help would be appreciated I think I just have my PATHS totally wrong.
