MySQL not starting in MAMP PRO

Right, so i’ve been playing with MAMP and use it to mess around with wordpress plugins and themes. However, I’ve been forced to keep MAMP running at all times because the moment I restart the server (after the first install of MAMP), mySql doesnt start. It works immediately after reinstalling MAMP, but anytime I stop it, it simply gives me an error. The exact error log is:

150812 10:31:33 mysqld_safe Starting mysqld daemon with databases

I’ve literally tried everything from killing all mysql processes, to changing port numbers, to restarting both MAMP and the Computer… Nothing seems to work. I even changed the file permission of host.frm to allow all users read&write access.

I have spent hours and hours looking to no avail 🙁 Any suggestions would be HUGELY appreciated!

Thank you!
