I followed https://flaviocopes.com/mysql-how-to-install/ to install MySQL on my MacBook running Big Sur.
I’m attempting to create a new connection and I click the button labelled "Configure Server Management" and before I can complete the installation I’m met with the following error:
Check if ~/sandboxes/msb_|Enter version here|/my.sandbox.cnf can be accessed Operation failed: File ~/sandboxes/msb_|Enter version here|/my.sandbox.cnf doesn't exist
Couldn’t find a solve for this anywhere.
On macOS MySQL doesn’t use a configuration file by default. It runs with default values. So, for the connection setup part you can just ignore the error and skip over that page.
You can later create a config file in the admin section of your connection and once that has been stored update the management section in the connections editor with the correct path.
