When I browse to my website, I'm seeing "Database connection error (2): Could not connect to MySQL."  I notice the MySQL55 service is not running, and will not start "error 1053: the service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion."  I dig down into the MySQL directory and bring up the .err file.  it shows the following:
