i had the same problem i don't know why but the only socet file i found on my mac was mysql-vcw.sock

so i just changed my database yml to include

socket: /tmp/mysql-vcw.sock

as written in original post he is running MAMP and MAMP will only be in one location: /Application/MAMP so the socks file also must be there. in my case it is under /Applications/MAMP/tmp/mysql. so I added the following line to database.yml and it woks: socket: /Applications/MAMP/tmp/mysql/mysql.sock

hope this helps Fritzek
