  Apache Web-Serving With Mac OS X, Part 5
Subject:   Incorrect chown statement

The article states the following line should be used to change ownership of the var directory and its contents:

sudo chown -R mysql /usr/local/var/*

Doing this, I was not able to successfully get mysqld to run. I had to change ownership of the var directory itself as well before mysql would start properly. This did the trick:

sudo chown -R mysql /usr/local/var
