MySQL Database not starting

When you start manager-osx and start all services (Apache, MySQL, ProFTPD), you might notice MySQL database fails to start. Here is how to fix it on Mac

  1. Go to spotlight in the top right corner, bring up Activity Monitor by typing “activity”
  2. Type SQL in the top right search box. It will show a process called “mysqld”
  3. Hightlight this process and click x icon to stop it.

Restart mysql in manager-osx and it should start.
