After upgrading to OSX 10.10 Yosemite, I noticed that MySQL won’t start at my XAMPP (I’m using XAMPP 1.8.3-5), after pressing the start button.

Here is how to solve this problem.

  1. Go to folder Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/.
  2. Find an unix executable file with name “xampp”.
  3. Open with your text editor.
  4. Find $XAMPP_ROOT/bin/mysql.server start > /dev/null &
  5. add unset DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH on top of it.
  6. Save file.
  7. Restart your MySQL.
It should look like :
$XAMPP_ROOT/bin/mysql.server start > /dev/null &
