and to execute it by entering into terminal

After that install RMagick, and you should be good to go
sudo gem install rmagick

Note: some of the version numbers don’t line up, but that’s an easy fix…just means you can’t copy and paste. Then you’ll probably want mysql admin:
then to get mysql admin to work with OS-X, we need to make sure mysql is running and to set the default configurations in a new terminal window type:
mysqladmin -u root password "mypassword"
Where “mypassword” needs to be replaced with your actual password. Once done you can launch mysqladmin from your application directory and connect to it using these settings:
Now you can then create new tables by going to “catalogs” and selecting the “+” button under schemata. Type in the name of your database and you’re good to go!
You can change your password in terminal any time by typing:
mysqladmin -u root -p'mypassword' password "mynewpassword"
Note: there is no space between the -p and ‘mypassword‘
