MAMP memory

MAMP memory

Run from command line:

$ /Applications/MAMP/Library/bin/mysql -u root -p

Is mySQL running?

$ ps -e | grep mysql

Does socket file exist?

$ ls -la /Applications/MAMP/tmp/mysql/mysql.sock 

You can check if mysql is running with the following command:

mysqladmin -u root -p status

On OS X to start/stop/restart MySQL from the command line:

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

$ sudo /usr/local/mysql/support-files/mysql.server stop

$ sudo /usr/local/mysql/support-files/mysql.server restart
If you installed a new MAMP, your default setting are too low. You have to edit the correct .INI file of your chosen PHP version! It should be located here:

Example for PHP 5.4.19


Edit the file and search for:

memory_limit = 32M

I would suggest a value of 128M instead. Save the file. Restart the server/MAMP app!!
