Thanks for the reply, Mick. I do the have the database connection params set correctly in config/database.yml. I stumbled across the following post (http://www.elharo.com/blog/category/software- development/databases/), and the suggestion was to change the mysql version from 64-bit to 32-bit (the mysql.com downloads). I did, and it works as expected now. As the mysql gem is compiled on my machine, not sure why there would be an issue?
