I am unable to start MySQL server after upgrading from OSX 10.8.5 to 10.9.3
prompt: sudo ./support-files/mysql.server restart ERROR! MySQL server PID file could not be found! ./support-files/mysql.server: line 276: cd: /usr/local/mysql: No such file or directory Starting MySQL ERROR! Couldn't find MySQL server (/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld_safe)
The start button on the MySQL preference pane is also greyed out. One thing I noticed is that the instructions here do not work as my mysql folder is actually called '
mysql-5.6.11-osx10.7-x86_64' and not plain '
/data directory is still there so a reinstall would be an acceptable resolution as long as I can preserve the data
