I’m building a new rails app that’s defaulted to mysql. I ran:
rails new project_board -d mysql
I’m running ruby 2.0, rails 4.0 and mysql 5.6.12
I installed mysql via homebrew
My database.yml file looks like this:
development: adapter: mysql2 encoding: utf8 database: project_board_development pool: 5 username: root password: host: localhost
But when I try to connect to Sequel Pro through this window:
I get the following error:
Unable to connect via the socket, or the request timed out.
Double-check that the socket path is correct and that you have the necessary privileges, and that the server is running.
MySQL said: Can’t connect to local MySQL server through socket ‘/tmp/mysql.sock’ (2)
I’ve also tried connecting via the standard method through 127.0.0.1 and it isn’t working either. Just curious if anyone has had this issue.
