Solution :

1. Running Docker on OS X : running the following eval has worked for me.

eval "$(docker-machine env default)"
2 If you do not want to run this eval statement on every terminal session then you can add this to your bash_profile:
#Docker
eval "$(docker-machine env default)"

3. Please make sure to restart the terminal session or run source on bash_profile for the changes to take effect.

Problem : I installed the docker-machine 0.1.0 and docker-compose 1.1.0 on the Mac OS 10.8.5. Docker-machine is running normally and able to connect by the docker-machine ssh. But can't connect from docker-compose getting following error: $ docker-compose up ... running? If it's at a non-standard location, specify the URL with the DOCKER_HOST environment variable. Why can't I connect? Any clues?

Problem : My problem kicked off when I was unable to log in as the root any more on the mysql install. I was trying to run mysql without the passwords turned on however when I ran my below command : # mysqld_safe --skip-grant-tables & I never got my prompt back. ... socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)' Check that mysqld is running and that the socket: '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' exists!
