What´s probably happening is that MySql is denying access to Rails ... but i can´t figure out how to fix it. Any ideas?
if you're database.yml has something like: username: root password: i.e. no password
Try connecting to mysql: mysql -u root
If you can't connect, you'll need to set up a user 'root' without a password. Something like from within mysql: GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'root'@'localhost' WITH GRANT OPTION;
