Hello fellow designers...

I'm currently learning about dynamic websites using totaltraining.com training videos and I've hit a problem. I've downloaded Coldfusion 8 (trial version) and MySQL Tools (includes MySQL administrator and MySQL Query Browser). I've installed Coldfusion and then it tells me in the video to log into mysql admin by using the word localhost in the Server Hostname field and the word root in the Username field. When I do this an error message appears saying-

Connection Error-
could not connect to MySQL instance at localhost. Error: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2) (code 2002)

Has anyone experienced this problem and any advice on how to fix it. I've conntacted totaltraining but they couldn't help. I'm using a mac by the way.

any help would be great
Dan
