mysql command not found (Mac issue?)

Hi,

I'm trying to load a schema for a programme called biosql.

I have created a database called "biosql" in MySQL, but i'm trying to load the biosql-schema/sql in MySQL with the command:

>mysql -u root biosql < biosqldb-mysql.sql

The "biosqldb-mysql.sql file is currently located on my mac in:
/Users/stevey_mac2k2/Desktop/ExerciseTwo/biosql-1.0.1/sql


I have created a .profile for my mysql commands with the script:

export PATH=/usr/local/mysql-5.1.35-osx10.5-x86/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/X11/bin:$PATH

i try the command:

bash-3.2# mysql -u root biosql < biosqldb-mysql.sql
bash: mysql: command not found

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I think the issue is that when i type "mysql" the OS doesn't know where MySQL is located.

I currently have MySQL saved in the directory:

/usr/local

(folders in this location are mysql      and   mysql-5.1.36-osx10.5-x86


with the $PATH (in .profile) set as:

export PATH=/usr/local/mysql-5.1.35-osx10.5-x86/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/X11/bin:$PATH


Is there something i need to modify?

Thanks

with the $PATH (in .profile) set as:

export PATH=/usr/local/mysql-5.1.35-osx10.5-x86/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/X11/bin:$PATH

as you can see the path is to

/usr/local/mysql-5.1.36-osx10.5-x86/bin

while in

PATH=/usr/local/mysql-5.1.35-osx10.5-x86/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/X11/bin:$PATH

you are using

/usr/local/mysql-5.1.35-osx10.5-x86/bin

so change it accordingly
