How to start MySQL from the Mac OS-X Yosemite Terminal

Symptom: Gestix is working before the computer is shut down however. Once the computer is restarted, Gestix stops with the following message.

Gestix complains about the database system

(It seems there is a problem with the database server. 
If the program was just working and you don’t know why this is happening, try reloading the page in a couple minutes. If the problem persists ask your system’s administrator attention to the problem.)

Although the MySQL Startup item seems to no longer work on OS-X 10.10, it’s possible to start it from the command line.

1. Open Finder | Applications | Utilities | Terminal

2. Paste this command and press Enter

sudo /usr/local/mysql/support-files/mysql.server start

3. Close the Terminal application.

If the problem persists there may be need for a remote technical intervention to the server by MySQL system specialists. Order technical support here.
