Mac OS X MySQL Won't Start

If you ever update MySQL on your Mac (I thought I would run 3.23 forever too), and have an issue starting it up, delete the updated version and the receipt directory in /Library/Receipts and reinstall. It will work fine after the reinstall. Since I'm really not up to the task of re-permissioning lots of things in mysterious ways, reinstalling does wonders.



  • Thank you, thank you, thank you. Spent four hours on this. Wish I had seen your comment earlier.
