  • Help downloading mysql

    Hi
    Can anyone please help me with my newbie question.

    I'm trying to download MySql onto my computer which is a Mac 0S 10.3 (Panther) G4

    I have been trying to download the installer package standard version from http://www.mysql.com/downloads/mysql-4.0.html.
    From what I understand I'm suppose to download and unpack the mysql version.pkg.tar.gz file to obtain the mysql version.pkg.tar.gz installation file and then double click to install mysql.

    Well the problem is that I have done that but I cant find the mysql version.pkg.tar.gz file to un pack. I have done this twice but arent having any luck. I have run a search trying to find the appropriate file but no such luck.

    If any one can help with this Id be greatful.

    Cheers
    Glen

    There are two packages, one is the tar.gz which you should use if you are comfortable with the command line.

    The other is the installer, which you can just double click to install.

    Either way you'll need to start the database once it's been installed and every time you reboot the machine.

    If you want to run mysql every time you start your computer there, is a start up items thingy you can download.. not sure where though

    Go here for the database
