Mac OS Sierra cannot start MySQL - Server Fault
This post has two solutions. The first solution of killing running processes has worked for me pretty much all the time. The second solution is from one of the comments below. Hi Tyler, thanks for posting.
During installation a window popped up to notify me that my wp databases had been copied to the folder mysql56 and it would be necessary to convert them when MySQL launched. Unhappily, MySQL has not launched.
I tried switching back to the default document root. Still no go. But what should I name them? Do you have any idea? I always just dump my databases and save any server config info then install the new version and import the DBs back in. With version 4 though, I have upgraded the latest point releases without any issues. Can you install v4 as a standalone and not upgrade your 1.
After trying everything recommended on the web. This seemed to work.
Restart, Start, Stop MySQL from the Command Line macOS, OSX, Linux
Problem is solved, after i did renaming this two files. What the heck MAMP!? Can you please share the details? My MAMP used to work fine but there was an outage and computer shutdown. Any advice? So I had to restart it by pushing the power button. I tried your solution above, however this did not resolve the problem. Any further assistance would be greatly appreciated. Same problem, no solutions have worked sadly. The path to this folder may be different on your system. Delete the lock file mysql.
This file is a plain text file with a PID in it. This file will be automatically rebuilt by MAMP on the next launch.
