I set up MAMP under an administrator account on this Mac OS 10.6.6. That works fine. The Apache and MySql server start and php works. When I log on to a user account with administrator privileges and start MAMP, the Apache and MySQL server don't start. That user account has administrator privileges but does not have a password.

Here is the error message.

/Applications/MAMP/LIbrary/bin/mysqlcheck: Got error: 2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/Applications/MAMP/tmp/mysql/mysql.dock'(61) when tyring to connect.

That user account has administrator privileges but does not have a password.

Try some permissions adjustments, per this post:

The answer is just go to the /Applications/MAMP/ folder and add the desired user(s), with reading and writing permissions, on the "Get info" (command-i) inspector for that folder.

An alternate solution might be to launch MAMP silently at system startup. Details listed on this StackOverflow question. Additional info located at this page.
