I need to stop Mysql server in MAMP PRO and keep Apache running. How can I do that ?

There is a stop button available but it stops all services.

I figured it out...

There is a shell script for that: /Applications/MAMP/bin/

If you changed your root password you have to edit this file and change the password in it.

You can just use the portion to start/stop MySQL.
