Thanks for the reply Peter!

That's also one reason why I can't seem to make sense of what to do. I specified
the my.cnf file in the option in the Preference Pane. This is all there is in my
my.cnf file:

[mysqld]
datadir = "/Volumes/mydisk/usr/local/mysql"
secure-file-priv = "/some/path/which/is/on/my/disk"
default_authentication_plugin=mysql_native_password

Unfortunately, the MySQL server does not start, and it does not write an error file..
