Can't connect to local MySQL question

Hi,

I've been writing software on the mac since 1987, but am brand new at
unix/php/mysql, and that's where I'm headed so I'm reading everything I can
get my hands on, but like anything else there's going to be a learning
curve, that having been said...

I followed the install instructions at http://entropy.ch , and was able to
get mySql & php installed on my G4 -> (OSX 10.2.6) last night. I downloaded
Navicat and setup a password for the mysql user. I created a connection
called myDatabase_conn ection to a database called myDatabase. I was able to
get everything running OK.

Today when I restarted the machine, I tried to launch the php program that I
was running last night, and kept getting an error 2002 below.

Could someone take a look at the syntax below and see if you could spot what
I am doing wrong?

Thank you very much...

Bill Hernandez

Greetings, I am attempting to get MySQLdb 0.9.2 installed on Mac OS 10.2 with a Fink distribution of Python 2.2.2.

I have compiled MySQL 4.1 and installed into /usr/local/mysql, but since have moved to a Fink...

Dear All, I just downloaded & installed MYSQL. It seemed to work and I can start it and enter my password and change a directory but that is about all. I have been ready and playing "hit & miss" all afternoon and it seems to have something to do with the "mysql_install_db" not being installed correctly -- I have tried multiple installs with multiple downloaws. My log. . .

This is a bit of a newbie question -- I've just installed MySQL 4.1.13 on a Fedora core 3 system. It installed great. It wasn't hard to get it running and create a few databases. But I can't seem to make the client shell run from anywhere but the mysql/bin directory. I've placed the /usr/local/mysql/bin directory in my PATH, but I still have to change to this directory to make the MySQL shell to work. If I'm try to run it from any other...

Sorry if this is a really dumb question. I am trying to connect to our remote MySQL server (which is running just fine). I have a perl script which worked just fine on my other Fedora 4 box (all servers are Fedora 4 with latests updates). The one that worked fine it down and I cannot compare anything against it (it was a client also). My problem is, when I try to connect to the server I get:

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
