.  bash-3.2# nmap -p3306 localhost

.  Starting Nmap 5.35DC1 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2012-02-12 15:46 GMT
.  Nmap scan report for localhost (
.  Host is up (0.00033s latency).
.  rDNS record for localhost.localdomain
.  3306/tcp closed mysql

.  Nmap done: 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 0.54 seconds

It looks like port 3306 is closed.  How do I open it?
