What's up with MySQL?

So, in my spare time, I've been trying to get an application off the ground. It's still in the planning stages, all the more so because I CAN'T GET FREAKING MYSQL TO WORK!

I don't know what's up. It was working fine (as far as I knew) when I installed it about a month & a half ago. When I went back this week to actually start using it, though, it didn't behave. There's one way I can actually log in- but that way won't let me modify anything, saying I don't have permissions. Not to mention the fact that it locks up if I try to do something simple like "SHOW databases;" Any other way I try to log in, I can't. It either shuts down mysqld because it "Can't change dir to '/usr/local/mysql/var/'". *sigh* I even tried deleting everything in mysql's directory & then reinstalling it; no luck. This thing has serious issues.

What are you running MySQL as? Who owns the /usr/local/mysql/var/ directory? What OS is this? If one trains departs from New York, and another from Washington DC, and both are traveling 65 miles per hour, what color are my pants?

Orange. But if one is departing from San Jose they're fuscia.

Sounds like a permissions issue, like the guy said.
