Hello everybody,

I just tried to install the XAMPP 10.7.3 dmg on my macbook pro running macos 10.7.5.

I manange to start and stop the apache server from the xampp control app but whenever I try to launch mysql I receive a popup window stating

The operation couldn’t be completed. (XAMPPErrorDomain error 1.)

I also tried to start the mysql.server from a terminal an there I get the following error message

Peters-MacBook-Pro:mysql pt3r$ sudo /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/bin/mysql.server start
Password:
Starting MySQL
. ERROR! Manager of pid-file quit without updating file.
Peters-MacBook-Pro:mysql pt3r$


Did I forget an installation step?

Hi! In my case, XAMPP is installed in /Applications/XAMPP, and what I did was something like this:
cd /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/bin/

ls -liah | grep mysql.server

"XXXXXXX lrwxr-xr-x X userowner groupowner 55B Feb 27 2010 mysql.server ->
/Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/share/mysql/mysql.server"


sudo mv mysql.server mysql.server.brkn
sudo ln -s /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/share/mysql/mysql.server mysql.server
sudo chown nobody mysql.server

...and voila! mysql starts ok, hope this helps.
Cheers
gerumato
