I'm using Mac OS X 10.6.2 on my Macbook Pro.
I can get the apache server to start, but not the mysql server, on both the default apache and default MAMP ports. When I try to go to my start page, I get the message "Error: Could not connect to MySQL server!" . Here's what's in my mysql error log:
00513 02:00:07 mysqld_safe mysqld from pid file /Applications/MAMP/tmp/mysql/mysql.pid ended 100513 02:00:16 mysqld_safe Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /Applications/MAMP/db/mysql 100513 2:00:16 [Warning] The syntax '--log_slow_queries' is deprecated and will be removed in a future release.

A couple of things:
1) There are a bunch of different .cnf files that come with MAMP (my-huge, my-medium, etc.)...how can I tell which one is actually being used?
2) I deleted the ib_logfile0 and ib_logfile1 as recommended by another post on serverfault, and then ended up with more errors:
100519 16:01:30 InnoDB: Log file /usr/local/mysql/data/ib_logfile0 did not exist: new to be created InnoDB: Setting log file /usr/local/mysql/data/ib_logfile0 size to 16 MB InnoDB: Database physically writes the file full: wait... 100519 16:01:30 InnoDB: Log file /usr/local/mysql/data/ib_logfile1 did not exist: new to be created InnoDB: Setting log file /usr/local/mysql/data/ib_logfile1 size to 16 MB InnoDB: Database physically writes the file full: wait...

And then I got this the next time I tried to run it:
InnoDB: Unable to lock /usr/local/mysql/data/ibdata1, error: 35 InnoDB: Check that you do not already have another mysqld process InnoDB: using the same InnoDB data or log files.
Sorry that this is a lot of information, but I don't want to leave anything out. Thanks.
