Upgraded to MAMP 4 yesterday and cannot get Drush to connect for the life of me. I believe I had a similar problem with MAMP 3, but the following fixed the issue. No luck this time.
sudo mkdir /var/mysql sudo ln -s /Applications/MAMP/tmp/mysql/mysql.sock /var/mysql/mysql.sock
Any ideas? I have Drush installed globally with Composer. Here's the error:
Command pm-update needs a higher bootstrap level to run - you will [error] need to invoke drush from a more functional Drupal environment to run this command. The drush command 'pm-update' could not be executed. [error] Drush was not able to start (bootstrap) the Drupal database. [error] Hint: This may occur when Drush is trying to: * bootstrap a site that has not been installed or does not have a configured database. In this case you can select another site with a working database setup by specifying the URI to use with the --uri parameter on the command line. See `drush topic docs-aliases` for details. * connect the database through a socket. The socket file may be wrong or the php-cli may have no access to it in a jailed shell. See http://drupal.org/node/1428638 for details.
