In connection with the question at:

Where is MYSQL installed on Mac?

I have a question too. The widget in the startup item says mysql is running and I can use it to stop it, apparently.

But the 'which mysql" and 'locate mysql' commands do nothing.

I guess I need to learn about editing the $PATH.

IS there something funny going on? What am I missing? (besides a whole lot..?)

Even Workbench seems to indicate that it is working.

Have you tried looking in /usr/local/bin/mysql ?
