[ Not able to connect to mysql using terminal in mac osx ]

I have installed zend server on my iMac. I can log on to zend server and i can log in to phpmyadmin, using user: root pw: (blank)

However. I am desperately trying to open mysql using the terminal. I have tried for 3h now and wiht all kinds of pathways and sudo-whatnot..

This i get when:

Williams-iMac:mysql uglyface$ cd /usr/local/zend/mysql/bin

Williams-iMac:bin uglyface$ ls

innochecksum mysql_config mysqlaccess.conf mysqlhotcopy msql2mysql mysql_convert_table_format mysqladmin mysqlimport my_print_defaults mysql_find_rows mysqladmin.client mysqlmanager myisam_ftdump mysql_fix_extensions mysqlbinlog mysqlshow myisamchk mysql_fix_privilege_tables mysqlbug mysqlslap myisamlog mysql_secure_installation mysqlcheck mysqltest myisampack mysql_setpermission mysqld mysqltest_embedded mysql mysql_tzinfo_to_sql mysqld-debug perror mysql.client mysql_upgrade mysqld_multi replace mysql.server mysql_waitpid mysqld_safe resolve_stack_dump mysql_client_test mysql_zap mysqldump resolveip mysql_client_test_embedded mysqlaccess mysqldumpslow setup_mysql.sh

So in here i can se mysql, but i haven been able to do anything with it. I am sorry for way of displaying the output i get. I tried to get it to display differently but with no success as you can see...

Do any one know what i can do, so that i can log in to my mysql?


edit: There is no mysql located in /usr/local/bin...

Answer 1

If mysql is running (you start it with the zend server controller), you should be able to do:

 /usr/local/zend/mysql/bin/mysql -uroot -p <your dbname>

You can verify mysqld is running by a simple

 ps -ef | grep mysqld

If it's running, you'll see more than just your grep command in the resulting process list.
