I managed to download the MySQL DMG archive to my OS (mac OS X). It works if I use the command line.
Now, I'm trying to install MySQL Workbench.
I've created MySQL Connection but once I'm testing the host machine settings, I get:
Checking command 'ps xa | grep "/usr/local/mysql.*/bin/[m]ysqld"'
Server detected as running
Check if /etc/my.cnf can be accessed
Operation failed: File /etc/my.cnf doesn't exist
Didis-MacBook:~ Didi$ find . -type f -name "*my.cnf*"
find: ./perms/newdir: Permission denied
sudo cp my-huge.cnf /etc/my.cnf
-bash: /usr/local/psa/bin/admin: No such file or directory.
I figured it out:
Went to my terminal and typed:
passwd Old password was blank I created a new password (it was THAT simple)
I created a "etc" directory
I checked the files under
/usr/local/mysql/support-files/ and saw my cnf file was actually named
my-default.cnf and not
my-huge.cnf like the developer at the MySQL site.
So I typed:
sudo cp my-default.cnf /etc/my.cnf
went back to the Workbench and it FINALLY said:
Testing host machine settings is done.
