My mysql database (5.6.23) became unable to start when I upgraded from El Capitan to Catalina (10.15.5). Now it works. This is what I did, but its possible some of this might not be needed or a recommended thing to do: /tmp$ su Password: /tmp# cd /usr/local/mysql/data /usr/local/mysql/data# chown _mysql:_mysql * /usr/local/mysql/data# chmod 777 * /usr/local/...


After hours investigating I found this post from Michael Fraase: I just added: [mysqld] user=root to /etc/my.cnf (or where you have your .cnf file) and it solved it (I can not believe it).
