MYSQL PID/SOCK error – I can’t get my Mac El Capitan to work with full web server

So I have been trying to get my localhost up on my brand new MacBook Air on OSX El Capitan.

What I have so far is PHP seems to be working correctly, Apache seems to be working correctly also, but mysql is giving me a headache.

I tried to install the stock version of mysql, which doesn't seem to work at all, it started and every time I tried to login to mysql it completely broke and I didn't see any error messages, but I guess it was the same I got for the homebrew installed version.

When I tried Homwbrew brew install mysql it worked correctly.

Then I tried mysql_secure_installation it threw and error: Error: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)

Then I tried mysql.server start and I got ... ERROR! The server quit without updating PID file (/usr/local/var/mysql/

This is my third fresh install for Mac and I have no idea at this point.

I tried permissions, creating the PID file and a lot of other things.

Launch Air Flex 4.10 mobile app from browser on Android

I'm trying to launch my air application from browser on android. I follow this document, but unfortunately with no success.

Here is the android manifest section of app desriptor xml file:


      <manifest android:installLocation="auto">
        <application android:hardwareAccelerated="true"/>

        <activity android:name=".AppEntry" android:excludeFromRecents="true">
                <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN"/>
                <action android:name="android.intent.action.VIEW" />
                <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER"/>
                <category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
                <category android:name="android.intent.category.BROWSABLE"/>
                <data android:scheme="uicgame"

        <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.DISABLE_KEYGUARD"/>
        <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WAKE_LOCK"/>

Here is the links I use to invoke the app. None of them works properly. The first one opens google play and tries to find specified package ( in my case).

<a href="intent://game#Intent;scheme=uicgame;;end"> Take a QR code </a>
<a href="intent:#Intent;scheme=uicgame;action=android.intent.action.VIEW;category=android.intent.category.LAUNCHER;;end"> Take a QR code </a>
<a href="uicgame:#Intent;action=android.intent.action.VIEW;end"> Take a QR code </a>
<a href="uicgame://">uicgame</a>

I can launch my app from another air app by using naviagateToUrl() function in couple with the second link like this:


Could any kind soul tell me where I'm wrong?
