I am working on macOS High Sierra.
Basically, the problem is that for some reason the mysql server is starting and stopping automatically, and constantly. It does not stop. If I run:
# ps -ax | grep mysql
to see the processes even when I (think) I have uninstalled mysql, it shows:
54948 ttys002 0:00.00 grep mysql
I run the same thing 5 seconds later, and it has a different ID:
54950 ttys002 0:00.00 grep mysql
sudo kill -9 54950 because by the time I try to kill it, it has already disappeared.
I have tried removing everything related to mysql. I then reinstall it, and the same thing happens. I have tried doing this with homebrew as well.
