MySQL does not start, I have previously installed zend server on the same Mac and MySQL worked. I have reinstalled after rm -r /usr/local/zend . Are there any other directories I need to clear? Or do you have any ideas?

/usr/local/zend/mysql/data

bash-3.2# echo $PATH
/usr/local/zend/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/X11/bin
bash-3.2# zendctl.sh start-mysql
Starting MySQL
. ERROR! Manager of pid-file quit without updating file.
bash-3.2# 

This is the log file of the failed start-up
