So, i'm not liking how Zend Server works, it's very difficult and not laid out well. For example I'm looking at the Server Info page, and it tells me everything I don't want to know, but not the important stuff like Where is my document root? What port do I use to connect to the web server (by default it is 10088)? These seem to me to be basic stuff that makes the learning curve for zend much more difficult. ANYWAY enough ranting about that. Reading the documentation eventually gleamed those facts for me.
Still, I cannot seem to be able to find out how to connect to this elusive mysql server. I know it's running because I can open phpmyadmin. But this is not my preferred way of working.. c'mon it's phpmyadmin. So I try opening up terminal and access and seeing if I could command line in.
NOPE "mysql" command does not work there.
So maybe for whatever reason I have to hunt down the paths because they're not binded to my bash profile on a standard install. Fine, but then I fire up MySQL workbench and try using localhost:3306 with root user. Nope, can't connect. Okay so maybe we're on some non-standard port? I check the zend server configuration panel and it shows the default. Just in case, I manually change it to 3306. Try again, Nope workbench can't connect.
Okay fine, maybe it's something else. If PHPmyAdmin can work of all things, then I'll just figure it out from pma's configuration. PMA config gleams no useful information. Basically it says localhost. GAH! I'm pulling my hair out.
Obviously, there is MySQL somewhere in this stupid Mac OS X box. I've used windows, XAMP, straight php apache on windows and Centos, never have I had this much trouble connecting before.
Any help would be much appreciated. I feel like a newb again.
