Hello,

I thought my database connection was working after I was able to migrate
my schema to the database, but after I setup a simple test and ran rake
I get the following error:

/usr/local/bin/ruby -Ilib:test
"/usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rake-0.7.2/lib/rake/rake_test_loader.rb"
No such file or directory - /tmp/mysql.sock


My database.yml file looks like this:
development:
  adapter: mysql
  database: emporium_development
  username: root
  password: root
  host: localhost
  socket: /Applications/MAMP/tmp/mysql/mysql.sock

Im using MAMP as my database management system.


Can someone help please?

Hey,
You'll need to setup a test database as well if your trying to run
Unit Tests etc.
Rails uses different DB's for dev, test and production

Convention would be the following:
 test:
   adapter: mysql
   database: emporium_test
   username: root
   password: root
   host: localhost
   socket: /Applications/MAMP/tmp/mysql/mysql.sock

Add that to you database.yml file first and then make a new DB called
emporium_test and all should be fine.
