Re: MySQL download on Mac

I recently tried installing 8.0.16 on my iMac which runs MacOS 10.13 High Sierra - due to the age of the iMac (mid 2010) I cannot go beyond High Sierra.

MySQL seems to download and install without problem. However, when from within the MySQL Prefence Pane I attempt to activate the server, it is on for a few seconds and then off again for a few seconds, then on again, etc. I suspect a problem with folder permissions, but I haven't been able to establish that.

I have a MacBook Pro of similar age, again running High Sierra, and have downloaded and installed MySQL 8.0.16 successfully. The server activates through the Preference Pane, I access it via MySQL Workbench, have loaded schemas, and will shortly load data. So the problem on the iMac is unlikely to be a problem with High Sierra.

I also have googled the problem, without joy. If anyone has any suggestions, they would be most welcome.
