    You can for example play on a WoW 4.3.4 Cataclysm server like:

    http://www.elune-gaming.com/

    That is instant 85 and offers great PvP & PvE

    You have to download the applications from the internet.
    MAMP, MAMP Pro, and Navicat

    When I open it in Terminal it says:

    FIXED THE MISSING FILES PROBLEM
    google mangos download then download it. make the missing databases then run the sql file by right clicking it and execute. it will be named the same as the database

    second pic says: this is where the data ____ is. it is where you can add custom gear, items and people, manage accounts and more stuff like that. he just wants you to double-click the mangos

    Go www.google.com and type Download libmysqlclient_r.15.dylibthat than u can find it the second one is the right one :D

    I can't even find the application in my applications.... Anyone have an idea why?

    i know everyone has already said this but I CANT FIND THE opt FOLDER!!!

    when i test the conntection, it says:

    Connection Failed
    Can't connect to MySQL server on '127.0.0.1' (61)

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