How to solve MySql not starting in MAMP problem?

In mac if you have ever encountered a problem that MySQL suddenly stopped working then i have a solution to your problem. I have recently encountered this problem in my Mac OS Sierra. Apache server is working but mysql is not. The solution is to navigate to the mysql folder, in my case its,

/Applications/MAMP/db/mysql56/

and remove all the files except folders. Then restart MAMP again. This has perfectly worked in my case. Hope it helps you. If it helped please do not forget to comment below. Thanks.
