Getting Sequel Pro to read MySQL on MacOS

As a follow-up to the previous post (Installing MySQL on MacOS with Homebrew), to get Sequel Pro working you need to do the following:

Open my.cnf (usually at /usr/local/etc) and add the following line and save:

Sign into mysql with mysql -u root -p

Set the root user password with:

ALTER USER 'root'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED WITH mysql_native_password BY '[PASSWORD]';

where [PASSWORD] is a password of your choosing.

Delete my.cnf (MySQL will regenerate it):

sudo rm -rf /usr/local/etc/my.cnf

Restart mysql:

brew services restart mysql

Now Sequel Pro should be able to log into MySQL.

Sequel Pro and MySQL connection failed
Cannot find MySQL.sock
