I have installed MySQL 5.5.27 on my MAC using the binary installer. I am able to run the mysql server with /Library/StartupItems/MySQLCOM/MySQLCOM start. But I am not able to run the mysqld with standalone option. I get the following error:
120821 17:28:03 [Note] Plugin 'FEDERATED' is disabled. bin/mysqld: Can't find file: './mysql/plugin.frm' (errno: 13) 120821 17:28:03 [ERROR] Can't open the mysql.plugin table. Please run mysql_upgrade to create it. 120821 17:28:03 InnoDB: The InnoDB memory heap is disabled 120821 17:28:03 InnoDB: Mutexes and rw_locks use GCC atomic builtins 120821 17:28:03 InnoDB: Compressed tables use zlib 1.2.3 120821 17:28:03 InnoDB: Initializing buffer pool, size = 128.0M 120821 17:28:03 InnoDB: Completed initialization of buffer pool 120821 17:28:04 InnoDB: Operating system error number 13 in a file operation. InnoDB: The error means mysqld does not have the access rights to InnoDB: the directory. InnoDB: File name ./ibdata1 InnoDB: File operation call: 'open'. InnoDB: Cannot continue operation.
Could you please help me to run the mysqld --standalone ?
