Issue: I try to launch MAMP Pro, enter my system password then it sits there trying to connect to MySQL. This has been running fine previously.
Background: I'm running OSX v10.8.2 and Path Finder crashed, followed by Skype. I did a restart, both those apps were then fine, but MAMP Pro fails to launch.
I've updated MAMP Pro to latest version (v2.1.2), and Googled for solutions, nothing seems to resolve it.
Console shows this:
18/02/2013 18:35:22.335 coreservicesd: Application App:"System Preferences" [ 0x0/0x23023] @ 0x0x7fde9ad13050 tried to be brought forward, but isn't in fPermittedFrontASNs ( ( ASN:0x0-0x22022:) ), so denying.

MySQL log is empty.
ps aux | grep mysqld in terminal (as suggested on numerous sites as a solution to MAMP Pro not starting MySQL), it lists one entry, but the PID continually increases and I can't kill the process via the name
I've used Cocktail to purge memory cache and rebuild launch Services database.
I've also tried booting into Safe mode, then restarting (another suggested solution).
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
