Mac OS X (DAMP) to Pantheon tips

on Wed, 01/19/2011 - 1:31pm

Pantheon is an amazing product. I am thrilled that we are able to participate as beta users in their product. However, as with all beta products, some of the "nice-to-haves" are not quite in place yet, as they focus on polishing the "must-haves" first (and the must-haves are truly delightful in Pantheon's implementation). As a Mac OS X users, and having become addicted to using DAMP for my local development environment, there are a few hurdles to overcome to make the workflow smooth and fast.

Using DAMP MySQL from the Command Line

on Fri, 05/28/2010 - 8:12pm

I have had trouble for months trying to get MySQL to run in Snow Leopard. I've read multiple tutorials on the web about this issue, and while it's a well-known problem and there is quite a bit of documentation on the fix, in the end I never got any of them to work properly. I was forever getting an error saying that the system could not find the connection, or .sock file, for MySQL, but there were other problems as well.
