When you created the database, did you also create a user with those same credentials? Seems like a dumb question but that would be the problem.
The exception might be if you have an old version of mySQL locally and are using old password methods. If the error is "Client does not support authentication protocol" that would be it: Client does not support authentication protocol [dev.mysql.com]
