mysql data directory location

Posted by: admin April 4, 2018 Leave a comment


I installed mysql in Mac after downloding its dmg file version 64 bit.
While trying to create a database it gave me error 1006 — can’t create database. After browsing a number of website, it seems due to user ownership setting of mysql “data directory” location that needs to be changed.

Where is mysql default “data directory”? I could not find /var/lib/mysql in localhost.
