Solution for installing MySQL on Mac OS X....

Just in case anyone has the same problem. After a few hours, I found
the solution for installing MySQL on Mac OS X. As well as a ton of
other people, I was getting the error...

Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock'

Its a problem with permissions. Try this from the terminal, it worked
for me...

sudo chmod 1777 /tmp


sudo chown -R mysql:mysql /usr/local/mysql/data
Cheers. -Nick
