MAMP headache on Mac
If you can’t figure out why the MySQL Server won’t turn on if you’re using MAMP to do local development work, here are two ways to go about it.
What worked for me
2. In the
Finder, go to and delete the log files (in my case ib_logfile0 and ib_logfile1). Applications/MAMP/db/mysql56
So I tried the below fix and kept getting
No matching processes were found
What others used that didn’t work for me
Terminal (either open Spotlight ( ) and type “ Cmd+Space ” or you can find Terminal in the /Applications/Utilities/folder) terminal Then type this (will allow you to kill the mysqld process with security privileges of another users such as root)
ps aux | grep mysql
sudo killall -9 mysqld

When I was installing Whatsapp on my Ubuntu PC, there was a step where I had to “Open in Terminal” but my Ubuntu 14.04 had no such option, so I did some digging and this is how you do it.
nautilus-actions packages are available in Universe repository of Ubuntu 14.04. So run the below commands to enable universe repository and also to install above mentioned packages.
sudo add-apt-repository universe
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nautilus-open-terminal
sudo apt-get install nautilus-actions
command to quit nautilus. Now you can be able to see
Open in terminal option on right-clicking.
Hope that helps.
