Hello Hao,

You're doing it the right way, but you're missing one flag to indicate you want to use your own server, for that matter you must use `--use-external-server`. For instance:

$ python3 --use-external-server -H --port=4037 --user=ph

When this flag is omitted, it falls back to the default behavior which is bootstrapping a server, and since it seems `/usr/local/mysql` is not reachable in your system, it dumps an error. In case you want to rely on bootstrapping sometime in the future, you need to make sure the folder `mysql` is reachable (you can export the corresponding folder path to be part of the PATH environment variable).

Finally, you can always use `python3 .\ --help` to get a feeling of the available options.
