This issue came up when I recently restarted my MacBook.

MySLQ was installed to my Mac using Homebrew, so I checked the whether MySQL is running using the following command


It showed that the service is running. So I went to mysql installation folder and ran the following command.

This gave me the following error.

dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/local/opt/openssl/lib/libssl.1.0.0.dylib
Referenced from: /usr/local/Cellar/mysql/8.0.15/bin/my_print_defaults Reason: image not found

I decided to reinstall openssl and ran the following command.

This gave me another error.

Error: Refusing to uninstall /usr/local/Cellar/openssl/1.0.2t
because it is required by apr-util, curl-openssl, freetds, glib, httpd, krb5, libevent, libpq, libssh2, mysql, nghttp2, nginx, openldap, php, python, [email protected] and rtmpdump, which are currently installed.

So I updated the homebrew and tried to uninstall openssl using --ignore-dependencies flag

After removing openssl, I reinstalled it. You can install openssl using one of the following commands.
