Since updating my MacBook's operating system from Leopard (10.5) to Snow Leopard (10.6) the WordPress test sites on my computer no longer work. When I go to them using my web sharing through Apache I just see "Error establishing a database connection".
This is an improvement from before when they didn't work at all. I got some help at Apple's discussion boards (See posts here). To summarize, per the advice from a board member, I updated MySQL to the latest version and had to enter some commands through the terminal. I can see all of my databases using Sequel Pro as well as add users. However, I can't flush privileges and only see this error "MySQL said: Table 'mysql.servers' doesn't exist"
I've got some very urgent projects I need to work on and this has held me up for a week trying to get it straightened out. Any advice would be helpful.
