Fix: MySQL MAMP PRO – Neverending “Loading”

So Today I encountered a weird bug in MAMP PRO 2.0.1:

After doing a restart of MAMP PRO, MySQL was loading, but didn’t load. None of the settings were accessible, even after I killed everything and restarted it. This happens when you add a new “host”, and don’t specify the file-path (“Disc Location”). To get out of the loop here is what you have to do:

  1. Start MAMP PRO
  2. Open Terminal
  3. Enter: /Applications/MAMP/bin/stop.sh

Whola!

p.s. Ohh, and if you’re not to happy about using a Terminal, easy pie. You just have to actually go to your MAMP folder in Applications, open up “bin” folder, and double clickaty on your “stop.sh”. (opening Terminal is a little quicker though…)
