Maybe this can help someone.

I just installed MAMP, and got the same error. Then I checked the index.php file under the /MAMP/bin/mamp/ folder, and found that it hard code the msyql connection username/password as root/root. If you changed the default root password (of course for security), you can modify the code in index.php to test MAMP. It worked for me.
I have got exactly the same problem. I tried all the tricks you gave on this forum, and it still doesn't work.
The two lights are now green (Apache and MySQL) when I start MAMP, but the same message 'Error: Could not connect to MySQL server!' comes when I open the window.
Does some have another idea ?
