Thanks for the input. I have noticed when I wanted to remove MySql Server from my system
there were a lot of steps I had to go through and one was to modify the config file which
was locked. I used show info on the file and changed the permissions on it to read write.
Then when I tried to change the file, it was still locked and wouldn't allow me.
I did look at /usr/local/mysql/bin/sqlLines and it is empty.
When I first open terminal this is what I get:
What should I do to change to a directory owned by me and how will I know. I usually use
cd .. used at the above prompt I get:
