I'm configuring phpmyadmin.  I get the error cannot load mycrypt
extension and configuration error.   The
The permissions are different on the pma folder and the contents. In
the documentations it says they are all supposed to be the same.   I
notice on the mac the rpma folder owner is staff but the contents are
owned by me.   I get the error cannot load mycrypt extension,
configuration error.

I can start mysql server logged in as  either mysqladmin or mysql in
mysqladmin.  I can start in mysql safe mode as mysql user from the
command line:
sudo /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld_safe --user=mysql &

 I can't however log into phpmyadmin.  I can't figure out how to
change the owners on a Mac?  I can do it from the command line if you
tell me how.  I was reading you are supposed to start as user mysql in
safe mode so that someone can't get your file.  Also,
you are supposed to have a user mysql.apache?

Did you try asking in the phpmyadmin support forums?  They know their
product better than anyone else.

The error about mcrypt is nothing to do with either mysqld or PMA - it
just means that your php.ini file says to load the mcrypt extension
but PHP can't (either its not there, or the permissions are wrong).
This error will not affect the operation of either PMA or mysqld.

As for the PMA error - go back and read the manual for how to
configure it. It took me a couple of goes to work it out.
