Sharing Kodi libraries - sorry for the duplicate

To add extra challenge and fun, the Forum rules won’t let me reply to a topic for another 5 hours…

If you installed MariaDB, try sudo mysql
If you installed MySQL try sudo mysql -u root -p

Is this OSMC?

Yes, it is OSMC. I am trying to follow (for Mac)
The recommended way is to use a common database (via MYSQL).

Which, of course, has no reference to “-u root -p”. But I tried that and got the mysql command line and entered (as instructed)

  • CREATE USER 'kodi' IDENTIFIED BY 'kodi';
  • GRANT ALL ON *.* TO 'kodi';

Both commands gave a response
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

I exited and went to /usr/local/mysql/support-files/ as instructed but there is no my-huge.cnf

Here is the directory I see:
jbuccino@Joes-2019-MBP support-files % ls -al
total 40
drwxr-xr-x 5 root wheel 160 Dec 9 14:52 .
drwxr-xr-x 13 root wheel 416 Feb 17 15:05 …
-rw-r–r-- 1 root wheel 2048 Dec 9 14:31 mysql-log-rotate
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 10585 Dec 9 14:31 mysql.server
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 1061 Dec 9 13:53 mysqld_multi.server

Clearly the instructions are out of date or I am missing something. Does anyone have any ideas?
