    MySQL on Mac

    I am currently running Mac OS X 10.6.8 and I am learning how to use Apache, PHP and MySQL. I have enabled Apache2 and PHP and installed MySQL but I am unable to start MySQL. How do I determine if I installed MySQL correct and how do I turn on the MySQL terminal so that I can start building databases? I am assuming I have to do something so that MySQL will connect with my webserver? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Alexsts thank you for your reply. This is the version and location of what I downloaded:

    MySQL Community Server 5.5.25

    Mac OS X ver. 10.6 (x86, 64-bit), DMG Archive

    At http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/

    I originally had XAMMP installed on my computer and deleted it before i installed mysql.

    I went into my terminal and typed "uname -a" to determine which bit I needed download.

    I appreciate your help!
