[FIXED] Artisan denied access to database with correct de...

Something very strange is happening. I'm using MAMP to locally host my project, and that is able to access the database with the details specified in config/database.php and .env - and when I change these details it fails to access the database - however when I run 'php artisan migrate' I get the usual error code associated with incorrect login details (Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)). I've only ever used Valet before, but am now using MAMP so I think it may be my lack of experience in setting that up. I have specified a UNIX_SOCKET in .env and config/database.php and cleared my config and cache a million times. Thanks for any help.

[EDIT] Fix: Since Laravel 5.5 UNIX_SOCKET in .env should be named DB_SOCKET.
