MySQL causes OS X freeze

Postby spookybathtub » 02. June 2013 04:31

I've been having an issue lately where my Dock service freezes the system, and I think I've tracked down the MySQL part of XAMPP as the culprit. Here are the exact symptoms:
    Cmd-Tab does not work
    Expose / Mission Control Spaces does not work.
    Notification Center is frozen
    Hidden dock will not appear
    The .db files in ~/Library/Application/Support/Dock/ are accessed constantly (as shown by fseventer)

I can fix all these problems immediately by doing the following:
    sudo /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/xampp stopmysql
    killall -9 com.apple.dock.extra
    killall -9 Dock
But they usually happen again as soon as I restart MySQL. Anyone else encountered this, or know of a fix? Is it possible that it's related to some specific SQL database on my system? I tried creating a new OS user account, and the same problem happens there.

I have exactly the same symptoms. I have a brand new Mac Mini with Mountain Lion.
I would appreciate a quick solution to that problem.

hm, i deactivated everything in system preferences / spotlight
everything working fine now...

maybe there is some issue when spotlight is indexing the application folder where xampp is installed?

Interesting... That's possible. I'm away from my computer for awhile, but could you try adding /Applications/XAMPP to the Spotlight ignore list?
EDIT: That suggestion does not work for me. I continue having this problem and it is very serious. I've noticed it happens every time I run a particular PHP app, which heavily uses MySQL.

Here's what I've already tried:
Create a new OS user account
Remove / reinstall XAMPP 1.7.3
Delete ~/Library/Application Support/Dock/***.db
Delete ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.dock.plist

This is really frustrating. I'd love to get some advice or talk to tech support.

I recently upgraded to XAMPP 1.8.2 and I have the exact same symptoms. Now I've also noticed that when this problem happens, the XAMPP GUI shows a red dot for MySQL, even though I see it running in Activity Monitor. running 'xampp stopmysql' does stop it successfully though.
