    Unable to connect to MySQL on Localhost on Mac OS

      Hello,


      I am unable to connect Tableau Desktop version 9.0. with the MySQL server on Mac.


      I have installed MAMP and Sequel Pro. Following are my details:

      Hostlocalhost
      Port8889
      Userroot
      Passwordroot
      Socket/Applications/MAMP/tmp/mysql/mysql.sock

       

      When I enter the following:

      I get this error message:

      Screenshot 2015-11-13 23.05.55.png

      • [MySQL][ODBC 5.3(w) Driver]Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
      • Invalid username or password.

      I have followed a lot of the threads on the forum, but unfortunately I am unable to find a solution. Could you please advise?

       

      Many thanks,

      Agnieszka
