Subject:   Several questions about mysql with OSX 10.3.9

- My install of mysql is not in the directory everyone else on the forum is referring and I don't know why (I am relatively new to OSX)

The installer did not prompt me to select the destination directory.

the mysql directory is in Macintosh HD/Users/john/Desktop.

I get the error message Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2) . I have not changed the admin password and I am logged in as an admin to OSX. I modified the php.ini.default file to include a path to the aforementioned directory, and saved the file as php.ini back out to the same directory where the php.ini.default was located. Also, the subfolder underneath mysql has the number "386" in the directory title - that makes me nervous.

I have 10.3.9 client version of OSX, and Perl 5.8.7.

Any solutions out there? I have been going around in circles all weekend and now it's already monday, and I'm still at ground zero. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
