Hi! I had a question on rake. I am going through Mr. Lenz’s book, and have been coasting through successfully until I hit the section in Ch. 6 on testing. At the command line, in my application root, I typed: $ rake test:units
My error message was:
daniel-ahns-power-mac-g5:~/Sites/shovell dannyG5$ rake test:units
#28000Access denied for user ‘root’@‘localhost’ (using password: NO)
(See full trace by running task with --trace)
It seems as if rake is trying to communicate with mysql – i put a password on mysql, though my username is still root. Do I have to log on to mysql or somehow provide rake with my mysql password so it can successfully test? How do I do that?
When I used $ rake db:migrate, everything worked fine, so I’m confused, as my mysql knowledge is at a beginner level.
I’m on a G5 OSX 10.4.10, running Ruby 1.8.6, rails 1.2.3, mysql 5. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
