Updating to snowleopard dec 09

error includes: ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local My SQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2) Anyway, before I ran the new install on the i Mac I managed to drag the data directory onto a USB flash drive as a precaution.

I'm hoping once I get the database server running again I can reconnect this data.

But before you start, make sure your Mac is prepared for the upgrade.

Updating to snowleopard dec 09

This time I was unable to run the back-up although all the folders and files are still in place, in the data bin directory. The i Mac has all the important data on it (LAN Intranet Server) and I test everything through the Mac Book 1st.

I had managed to get the My SQL re-installed and working again on the Mac Book and was able to connect the old database so replicated the process on the i Mac. The new install wiped out the old data and still doesn't work.

The other thing is that the disk only got recognised once Double clicking the installer gave an error message that it requires at lease 10.5 (leopard) to install..reeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaalllllllllyy hope I don't have to go get leopard too This sounds like a Snow Leopard "Drop-In Disk".

This is a Snow Leopard disk that was "dropped" into the box of a new Mac computer at the time Snow Leopard was first released..that a person buying the new computer (with OS 10.5 already installed on it)...could upgrade to Snow Leopard (10.6) for free.

I had tried to set it to update from my OS X server (server.local) (instead of pulling from Apple) to save bandwidth, but was never able to get it working.

Now when I run Software Update, I get: The Software Update Server (server.local) is not responding.

Otherwise, there's NO GOOD Reason to get Leopard, when Snow Leopard is only for the retail version.

If the computer won't startup from a White retail Snow Leopard disk, then it's likely that the DVD drive isn't working. I bought the retail version (This is the exact product I bought off amazon.com) but it keeps ejecting.

Close any other open programs, and launch the Installer. Next, you must agree to Apple’s Software License Agreement twice. Now verify the drive you want OS X 10.7 Lion to install upon. When your Mac is back up, the installer will automatically start. Once finished, your Mac will reboot itself into OS X Lion. For more on the new features in OS X Lion, check out our in-depth review. Transformation is on every IT organization's to-do list, but effectively transforming IT means a major shift in technology as well as business models and culture.

This should be the same drive to which you have OS X Snow Leopard installed. You'll see the fancy new Finder desktop with the Andromeda Galaxy background.

If any more info is required, I will try to be as clear as I can.
