MySQL Question

MySQL does not start when upgrading OSX to Yosemite or El Capitan

I know similar questions exist, such as MySQL with MAMP does not work with OSX Yosemite 10.10. However, I do have MAMP, nor XAMPP installed on my computer.

When I try to start mySQL from the PrefPane, nothing happens.

When I try to start mqSQL from the command line via

sudo /usr/local/mysql/support-files/mysql.server start
I get:


Starting MySQL . ERROR! The server quit without updating PID file

(/usr/local/mysql/data/adamg.local.pid).



Any and all help would be appreciated. I can supply any file output necessary.

Answer

Solved by installing the latest mySQL release, following the instructions here http://coolestguidesontheplanet.com/get-apache-mysql-php-phpmyadmin-working-osx-10-10-yosemite/

EDIT
As Yosemite gets more popular, more people are stumbling on this question. The answer above has to do with upgrading MySQL, so that it runs. The answer linked by @doc in the comments has to do with getting MySQL to start automatically. These are 2 separate issues.
