Webrick will not start on OSX 10.6.4. Snow Leopard

I cannot get Rails to play nice with my MacPorts installed MySQL5:

$ script/server

How to remedy this… The socket is in /opt/local/var/run/mysql5/
mysqld.sock:

me$ pwd
/opt/local/var/run/mysql5
me$ ls
mysqld.sock

so what is the issue?

It’s saying that there is a syntax error in your database.yml file
