John a couple more questions

1. How are you starting mysql ?
I am not using the macports version of mysql 5.7, as I compiled my version from source, but I start it with the following:

sh-3.2# /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld_safe --user=_mysql & 
[1] 581
sh-3.2# 2020-03-30T03:04:30.6NZ mysqld_safe Logging to ‘/var/log/mysql.err'.
2020-03-30T03:04:30.6NZ mysqld_safe Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /usr/local/mysql/data

2. In my my.cnf, I have the following:


do you have a mysqld_safe block?
