I am getting this error when trying to run pm-list. I am in the Drupal folder, not at the root, on Mamp Pro on my Mac using OS X El Capitan. I have tried setting the host from localhost to, tried adding paths to the .bash_profile. Not sure what else to do. Following is the output upon entering pm-list:

The drush command 'pm-list' could not be executed.                 
Drush was not able to start (bootstrap) the Drupal database.        
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
 * 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.
