MySQL not starting after Zend install

Whilst playing with Zend Server Community Edition trying to get mySQL to work I found myself at a point where mySQL would not start.

sudo start-mysql
Starting MySQL
. ERROR! Manager of pid-file quit without updating file.

I had tried removing ZEND Server completely as documented on the Zend site. At best this is a bit vague.

  • Stop all Zend Server processes
  • Delete all Zend Server installed files
  • Remove the .app from /Applications
  • Remove Zend users

No matter what I did I always got the same error after re installing.  So after looking round the file structure I tried running a script called uninstall located in the Zend bin folder.  This asks a few questions but after completing the process and re installing, then all now seems to work :-)

Robs-MacBook-Pro:bin rob$ sudo /usr/local/zend/bin/

please do so now and type "cont" to continue.
