I just installed MySQL Workbench and MySQL Server 5.6 but can't seem to get a Server Instance initiated. I went through the install and it all is up to date and seemed to go well, but when Workbench opens up, it does not show my localhost or MySQL56 instance. I try to add a default instance by selecting "New Server Instance", but it fails to connect (see attached screenshot for message).
I'm guessing it has something to do with the port or something... I choose the default 3306 when installing, but I'm not sure. Please advise.
