It is always easy to have a quick list of commands instead of bunch of notes lingering between line. So here is what I have for setting up MySQL in Mac –
brew install mysql
brew services start mysql
Now the MYSQL files must be existing in /usr/local/bin
sudo /usr/local/bin/mysql -u root -p
Use Mac root password / login password here and then you may need to enter the mysql root password for the first time login. If you wish to change this password later use below command –
ALTER USER ‘root’@’localhost’ IDENTIFIED BY ‘newpassword’;
Now you can use either terminal or any SQL UI editor to run and maintain database.
If getting authentication issues connection MYSQL via editor like sequelpro then you may need to reset the encryption feature which must be blocking the authentication.
ALTER USER 'root'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED WITH mysql_native_password BY 'root_password';
