I have installed MySQL (mysql-workbench-gpl-5.2.37-win32.msi ) which is a Windows Installation Workbench.
Couple of times, I have done re-installation on my computer. Now, I am not able to establish the connection.
Following error message is thrown, while i try to connect to the database from Workbench
- Check that mysql is running on server 127.0.0.1
- Check that mysql is running on port 3306 ( note : 3306 is the default, but this can be changed )
- Check the root has rights to connect to 127.0.0.1 from your address (mysql rights define what clients can connect to the server and from which machines)
- Make sure you are both providing a password if needed and using the correct password for 127.0.0.1 connecting from the host address you’re connecting from
