So you install mySql on your mac, and it’s working great, but then you go into terminal to run a mysqldump or something, and it doesn’t work!
you get a message something like:
-bash: mysqldump: command not found
so how do you fix this? well, copy and paste the following into your terminal window and press enter:
echo export PATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/mysql/bin:$PATH" >> ~/.profile
whoa, whoa, you say. what is this doing? It makes it so that when you type any command into the terminal, it does a check of these folders before giving you the “command not found” error.
If you want to undo it, you can always edit your .profile, or just delete it.
