Re: a curse on OS sierra and MySQL?

I was able to install a version of MySQL 5.6 on OS Sierra. It appears that the “launchdaemon’ method works while the mysql.server start/stop method does not work.  In retrospect I should have seen that, but I also think that the official documentation could and should be more explicit about what is a significant change in Apple’s start/stop routines.

If you mean that seriously, it needs to be more specific.

?! The cited page recommends more than sudo starts and stops, eg ... |unset TMPDIR mysql_install_db | Did you try that? Did you check the pid setting in my.cnf, eg
     pid-file=/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.pid? I believe you need to ensure that
     the pid file specified in my.cnf exists and that the mysql daemon owns
     it ...
mkdir /var/run/mysqld
     touch /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.pid
     chown -R mysql:mysql /var/run/mysqld

It’s cleary a problem that has been around for years because the Web is full of complaints and tips. But there doesn’t seem to be any convergence a bout a diagnosis or a likely cure. And there is nothing in the MySQL documentation that draws attention to the probem.

     That suggests the problem arose from a change in your app, or a setting
     change that occurred in a MySQL upgrade. To show that this is a common
     problem that MySQL docs ought to address, you'll need to identify the
     setting that's gone awry.
