CakePHP Database connection “Mysql” is missing, or could not be created in CakePHP Console SOLVED

Today, I spent some time helping a partner of mine trying to figure out how to enable and use the CakePHP console in Mac OS + XAMPP (Mac OS version of course), so, after searching on the internet what was going on, I realized there was a problem with the unix_socket for MySQL because Mac OS didn’t recognize this parameter automatically, so here is how I solved this issue, I hope this help you a lot.

Solution (in Mac OSX + XAMPP)

Adding the MySQL socket  to YOUR_SITE/app/Config/database.php

'unix_socket' => '/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/var/mysql/mysql.sock'

This is how my database.php file looks like:

class DATABASE_CONFIG {

	public $default = array(
		'datasource' => 'Database/Mysql',
		'persistent' => false,
		'host' => 'localhost',
		'login' => 'my_user',
		'password' => 'my_password',
		'database' => 'my_database',
		'prefix' => '',
		'unix_socket' => '/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/var/mysql/mysql.sock'
		//'encoding' => 'utf8',
	);

	public $test = array(
		'datasource' => 'Database/Mysql',
		'persistent' => false,
		'host' => 'localhost',
		'login' => 'user',
		'password' => 'password',
		'database' => 'test_database_name',
		'prefix' => '',
		//'encoding' => 'utf8',
	);
}
