MySQL Install Help

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.

Don't shutdown the firewall.  Go to the command line and type:
mysql -u root

Open in new window

and tell us what you get.

Also did you install 'mysqld' as a service?  If you didn't, you won't be able to connect until it is running.

I just fired up MySql Workbench on one of my machines.  If you installed MySQL on that machine, you do not need (or want) to create a new instance.  Go to the first column where it says 'Open a connection' and it will probably just 'automatically' bring up the MySQL server on that machine.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Shutting down the firewall didn't help.

I ran "mysql -u root" from cmd and it says "mysql is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file".

It seems like MySQL Server is not running.  I look at Windows Services and don't see it there, and I should, right?  How do I start it?

I go to programs | MySQL | MySQL Server 5.6 and just shows me the Command Line Client.  When I open that, it just opens and closes right away.

Go to the Control Panel where you can remove programs and remove MySQL if it is listed there.  Then redo the installation.  Download a new copy if you suspect the one you have may be corrupted.

I uninstalled and reinstalled and am all good.  I had downloaded Workbench and MySQL Server separately and they must not have been jiving...  When I did it all from the Windows installer, it worked.  Thanks for your suggestions.
