Why skip over the login for mySQL?

Why skip over the login for mySQL?

Hey guys

I have installed MySQL Admin and Query browser and the tutorial for PHP database starter kit skips this step and assumes you know how to get in? weird.

I have tried localhost root etc etc and even the MySQL website is unable to tell me.

I think I can get the hang of it if I just knew what the default serverhost/port/user/pass was for both admin and query browser,

help!!!!... (MAC OSX 10.5.6)

Try connecting to "localhost" with user "root" and a no password. That is usually the default on a clean install of MySQL.

could not connect error 2002

Tried that and it comes up with could not connect to MySQL instance at localhost. It mentions the socket /tmp/mysql.sock (2) (2002)

thanks for the suggestions though, would be nice to see better support options for this issue I have looked around and seem to find a couple of mac users with the same issue.

The mysql docs on resetting UNIX setting is for advanced users, even copying and pasting their instruction into terminal doesn't work.

anyway thanks for the reply
