Troubleshooting > MySQL and Database

My MySQL Server is slow

You can diagnose why your MySQL is slow by adding the following to your my.cnf template file below [mysqld].

slow-query-log = 1
slow-query-log-file = /applications/mamp/logs/mysql-slow.log
long_query_time = 1

Restart your MySQL server. Access your database. You should now see a log file named mysql-slow.log in your /Applications/MAMP/logs directory.
