Why don't you use something like XAMPP or MAMP?

You could install a client like workbench (there are probably better mac clients availble:

http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/workbench/

If you really need phpmyadmin, you could install in a subdirectory or as a separate host - just follow the install instruction from the phpmyadmin website

I have that installed but doesn't that only work when localhost port is 8888 where as mine is 8000. Doesn't it need to be connected to laravel somehow?

Create a new virtual host in MAMP, give it an unique dns name like phpmyadmin.local or something. Point the virtual hosts root folder to your phpmyadmin files.

That should be it, you should now be able to use phpmyadmin by visiting phpmyadmin.local in your browser.

No, it doesn't need to be connected to Laravel. They don't really have anything to do with each other.

So once its installed on my mac, it doesn't need to be included in the laravel folder?

Thanks everyone. I got it working :).

One more problem, I have been doing this course http://www.lynda.com/Laravel-tutorials/Creating-tables-Schema-... and I have created the database with the table. It is being displayed in phpmyadmin that I have the tables, but I am getting an error when I load the laravel home screen.

Are we supposed to guess the error you get, or what?

Just a tip for the future, always include relevant information about your problem. Knowing that you get an error is utterly useless without the error message you get.

Use SequelPro! [http://www.sequelpro.com/]

I second that, its so much better then phpmyadmin or anything else you can get. I use sequelpro, and don't use mamp or xampp, I installed php etc from brew, and have my vhosts to wildcard for anything folders in the ~Username/Sites folder and look for the "public" folder which would be your public_html, running that with a bind server.

I can basically just have a folder named laravel for example and access it via localhost at laravel.dev
