So I created my .bash_profile, opened it in a text editor and added:

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/mysql/bin

and then I saved it. Next, I tried running

sudo /usr/local/mysql/support-files/mysql.server start

was told to enter my password (so I did), and then terminal said

Starting MySQL 

and then it kept printing dots until it said:

ERROR! The server quit without updating PID file (/usr/local/mysql/data/Nicks-MacBook-Pro.local.pid).

The error logs look like:

    Please run ls -l /usr/local/mysql/data and show us the output – RolandoMySQLDBA Jan 28 at 22:27
  • @RolandoMySQLDBA I was following this link: marinamele.com/taskbuster-django-tutorial/… and I updated the question with the output you asked for. – nickcoding Jan 29 at 0:11
  • can you try with /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld_safe --socket=/tmp/mysql.sock --port=3306 --user=mysql & and check if mysql is running or not – ROHIT KHURANA Jan 29 at 12:13

I think the problem might be the PID file

There are two I can see

One in the directory

/usr/local/mysql/data/mysqld.local.pid

and one in the error message

/usr/local/mysql/data/Nicks-MacBook-Pro.local.pid

Please delete those two pid files if they still exist.

Then, start mysql and let’s us know what happens.

I have suggested this twice in the past, 4 years ago and 6 years ago

Before doing so, check to make mysqld is not running.

ps -ef | grep -v grep | grep mysqld

If you see mysqld still running, kill the process, then delete the pid files and retry starting mysql.

UPDATE 2021-01-29 15:56 EST

As it turns out, there were two installations of MySQL involved on the Mac as was learned in the Chat Session.

One installation was done as a dmg install; the other was a homebrew installation.

Once it was discovered that homebrew was competing with the dmg for the PID file, it was decided to stop using the dmg version and use the homebrew version via brew services approach.

The two installs were butting heads, having different PID files.

  • How do I interpret the results of ps -ef | grep -v grep | grep mysqld? The output was: 74 105 1 0 Wed11PM ?? 0:55.12 /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld --user=_mysql --basedir=/usr/local/mysql --datadir=/usr/local/mysql/data --plugin-dir=/usr/local/mysql/lib/plugin --log-error=/usr/local/mysql/data/mysqld.local.err --pid-file=/usr/local/mysql/data/mysqld.local.pid --keyring-file-data=/usr/local/mysql/keyring/keyring --early-plugin-load=keyring_file=keyring_file.so – nickcoding Jan 29 at 18:38
  • It looks like mysqld is still running. Can you login to MySQL ??? – RolandoMySQLDBA Jan 29 at 18:52
  • /usr/local/mysql/data/Nicks-MacBook-Pro.local.pid doesn't exist when I try to rm it – nickcoding Jan 29 at 18:53
  • Does the other PID exist ??? If it exists, don't delete it. mysqld is currently using. – RolandoMySQLDBA Jan 29 at 18:54
  • Yeah it did but I already removed it, here's the link to the commands I run: youtube.com/watch?v=D6yBnpaFpVs – nickcoding Jan 29 at 18:54
