Unless you deliberately installed it yourself, it's not installed. Are you prone to memory loss? ;) MySQL is not included with the standard Mac OS X installation.

If you want to get it yourself, you can grab a copy from MySQL.com's Download page (http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/).

You can follow this page's instructions (http://www.entropy.ch/software/macosx/mysql/) for setting it up.

thank you brad, always the helpful one!

also, as a beginner, how can i see which version is installed on my server? and if you know - should i install the newest version? is that one generally available on commercial servers at webhosting services? is it better to stick with an older, more widely spread version?
