Here is a test for you to try.  On the same machine where you are 
having problems, try connecting to your database using the same user 
information as your RR app uses, but do it from the command line.

For example:

mysql --user=xxx --password=yyy --database=zzz

This assumes that the mysql command is  in your path.  The normal 
installer on osx puts it in:


(well it puts in in /usr/local/... whatever, but creates a symbolic 
link at /usr/local/mysql)

So you may have to do this:

/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql ....

But try that.  If you can access it ok then there is a problem with 
your RR app.  But I suspect you will find that you have not granted the 
user rights to access the database.
