I came across this problem when I converted to a Mac and I was trying to connect to a MySQL database on MAMP using CocoaMySQL. CocoaMySQL wasn’t able to connect to the database. Thought the solution may be useful to others.
Host:localhost User:root Password:root
If you try to connect now you may get the following error: Unable to connect to host localhost. Be sure that the address is correct and that you have the necessary privileges. MySQL said: Access denied for user ‘root’@’localhost’ (using password: YES)
So here’s the extra bit. Enter the following in the socket field: /applications/mamp/tmp/mysql/mysql.sock
