An existing MySQL database suddenly stopped running after a restart. When I tried to connect I first got this error:
So tried to run mysql.server start and got this error:
ERROR! The server quit without updating PID file (/usr/local/var/mysql/Honshu.local.pid)
Tried using sudo but that did not change anything.
Went to install location and removed the *.err file (which was 53Mb!?)
sudo rm /usr/local/var/mysql/Honshu.local.err
Then ran mysql.server start and it started up just fine.
