Hello,

 

I originally started with my WAMP stack running on Windows 8.1, and installed Mavericks on a second HDD so I have a "distraction-free" work environment. I used Paragon NTFS drivers to get R/W access to my NTFS partitions. This way, I was able to get the built-in Apache running and pointed it to my existing document root on the Windows partition.

 

I then installed the exact same MySQL version (5.6.12) I had on Windows, on my OS X partition. However when I tried pointing the datadir to my old folder on my Windows partition, it didn't work:

ERROR! The server quit without updating PID file

Further reading brought up the possibility this could be a permissions issue. I know MySQL has a separate "_mysql" user on OS X, which I assume needs the same R/W access to my NTFS partition. Is there any way I can do this? I'm not sure the Paragon NTFS drivers give R/W rights to all users (I could be wrong).

 

Or is there a better way I can set up auto-mount R/W NTFS access for all users?

 

Hoping for some help. Thanks! :)
