Step 1: Download MacPack

Download MacPack from here. After you download it open it and run the installer.

Step 2: Get MAMP Running.

Picture of Get MAMP Running.
Now lets get MAMP running. Open up MAMP from your applications folder. Hopefully both lights will be green. If they are not please open MAMP PRO. It is right next to MAMP. Always open MAMP Pro if the lights do not go on. You can hide those if you want. Here are correct settings for MAMP and MAMP Pro in the pics below.

Step 3: Open Navicat Lite

Connection Failed
Can't connect to MySQL server on '' (61)

Before i entered the Port as 8889 it was 3306. does that change anything?

There should be a file on the desktop called libmysqlclient_r.15.dylibthat is included with macpack. Open and install it.

smallmammal6 years ago
I found that if I went into the MySQL pane of MAMP and uncheck "Allow local access only" then it fixed the problem. :)
Why can't I find Mamp in the applications folder? I can only see arcemu in machintosh hd. Help plz
Im having the same issue as everyone else here. Does anyone know what is going on?
