Xampp Mysql Mac

I’ve been using a XAMPP installation on my Mac to do some development. I’ve been working on a project that uses a CakePHP backend and Sencha Touch front end. I had been using PHPMyAdmin for most of the MySQL work. At some point while referencing table relationships I saw mention of the MySQLWorkbench application. It sounded interesting, especially for its relationship visualization features, so I thought I would give it a try. Keep in mind I’m primarily a front-end developer that has only dabbled here and there with some back-end, usually under close supervision. What could go wrong?

Xampp is equally compatible with operating systems like Linux, Microsoft Windows and Mac as well. Programmers find Xampp very easy to use, the reason is simple that it is powered by Apache, MySQL, PHP and Perl. The MySQL daemon is accessible via network. ProFTPD uses the password 'lampp' for user 'daemon'. To fix most of the security weaknesses simply call the following command: sudo /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/xampp security. This will launch a small security check to make the XAMPP installation secure. On XAMPP MySQL store the information in the tables. You can easily add tables to MySQL using the intuitive phpMyAdmin user interface. In the phpMyAdmin click on the ‘Structure’ tab. Below the tables list at the bottom of the page, click on the ‘Create new table on database’ wizard to get started. Create Database XAMPP for Terminal Mac. Use XAMPP On Terminal MAC.

War thunder tiny tim During World War II, many attackers and dive-bomber aircraft were lost to anti-aircraft fire when attempting to bomb enemy ships. A hail of bullets and explosive shells attempted to knock these aircraft out of the sky before they could deliver their payload. In response to these challenges, the United States Navy sought to develop a weapon in which to be able to sink a ship while minimizing the threat of anti-aircraft.


At first I thought I would see if I could just stumble my way through the setup based entirely on intuition and maybe some help from a well designed UI. I tried each of the three 'Connection Method' options. I tried using ‘localhost’ as well as the actual IP address. I tried the default port 3306 as well as an unspecified/blank port. When all that failed I then turned to the requisite web searches. I found a few results which suggesting making a few edits to various config files. When that failed I resigned to try another day and went back to using PHPMyAdmin.

This evening, rather than doing any actual project work, I thought I might take another stab at the seemingly simple task of connecting XAMPP and MySQLWorkbench. After revisiting some of the previous web search results on the issue, I found myself skimming the contents of MySQL’s ‘my.cnf’ file. I noted that it had a line that configure the socket with a path to the XAMPP’s ‘mysql.sock’. This sounded familiar, I remembered one of the ‘Connection Method’ options was ‘Local Socket/Pipe’. Although I had looked at that option before I never actually went so far as to specify a socket. For some reason I really felt that the ‘Standard (TCP/IP)’ option was going to be the winner.

I went back to the MySQLWorkbench connection dialog and finally got a successful connection. Here’s the final settings that worked (without modifying any of the default XAMPP/MySQL config files):

Connection Method: Local Socket/Pipe
Socket/Pipe Path: /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/var/mysql/mysql.sock
Username: root

Other than a ‘Connection Name’ those were the only settings I had to make. I used the ‘Test Connection’ button which prompted me for a password. After supplying the proper password I finally was inform by MySQLWorkbench that I was ‘Connected to MySQL using local socket/pipe … Connection parameters are correct’! Victory!

I am using: Mac OS X v10.6.8, XAMPP for Mac OS X v1.7.3, and MySQLWorkbench v5.2.42. I found XAMPP’s ‘my.cnf’ file at '/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/etc/my.cnf', which gave me the path to XAMPP’s MySQL socket on line 21.
