Use a MySQL-provided database management tool
Authored by: ozzyrules on Mar 23, '05 08:59:53AM

Unless I am missing something, the documentation does not apply to the OS X version.

For example the ability to hold the control button (or any modifier) in the connection dialog to toggle the cancel button to skip does not work. No mention of this in the documentation at all.

I guess my real question is how do I start the MySQl server?

If you installed MySQL from the provided OS X package, there should be a preference pane that can do it (though it sometimes indicates the server is running when it really isn't).
