It sounds like you've done everything right. I'm not sure what's going on.


As an alternative you could try using "Instant Rails" instead (this didn't exist when this tutorial was written):


http://instantrails.rubyforge.org/


Instant Rails includes mysql and apache, but can safely ignore the apache part and just make use of the included mysql (which is set up with no password). If you decide to try Instant Rails, be sure to uninstall your existing mysql first.

    Thank you for that tip-off.

    However, the access issue has now been fixed by using "127.0.0.1" fo rhte host name, instead of "localhost", per mention by one Dan Greening in the comments threat at http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/can-not-connect-to-server.html .

    Maybe this will help someone else as well!

    Again, thanks!
