Support » Installing WordPress » mysql on local machine

  • Mac OSX 10.3.8 and MySQL

    For WordPress theme tweaking I need an offline test/dev machine so as not to screw up my “production” blog. So I just installed MySQL on my Powerbook and enabled PHP. So far, so good… MySQL runs and PHP runs. Now MySQL is not a tool I have ANY experience with at all and it feels as if it is something that I can scew up royally.

    How do you handle users in MySQL. Are the OSX (admin or ordinary unpriviliged (as I usually like to run)) users automatically also MySQL-users? There is aMySQL-root, should I create users for (ordinary me) and for an administrator too?

    Confused, where do I go from here in order to get WordPress available a http://localhost/~lars/?
