After reading a few of the similar problems to mine and none of them working, I thought I'd attempt to be more specific to see if my root problem needed to be fixed differently than the others.

I also traditionally use Sequel Pro -- which migrated over from my old computer without any problems, and retained the connection details its always had:
But I'm getting the same error message through Sequel Pro as I am through Terminal:
Does anybody have any ideas of things I can try? After attempting some of the other similar questions on here, I've unfortunately come up with nothing.
