I can't start mysql due to this error:
ERROR! MySQL manager or server PID file could not be found! Starting MySQL.. ERROR! Manager of pid-file quit without updating file.
how can I fix this please?
Depending on the OS - the MySQL logs will be in varying locations and not always what is dictated in
But you can actually just start the MySQL daemon without using
Typically, for the error you have, it is because of permissions issues with the MySQL daemon being able to write to the pid file.
