I am using AMPPS 3.2 and MySQL Workbench 5.2.31 on Windows 7. I have installed MySQL as a service, running "C:\Program Files (x86)\Ampps\mysql\bin\mysqld.exe" install in Administrator mode, and I have started it manually. It was successfully done because I can use PHPMyAdmin, and AMPPS shows MySQL working.

The problem is with MySQL Workbench. There is the same connection configured in it, but when I try to connect, the following error appears:

Your connection attempt failed for user 'root' from your host to server at localhost:3306: Access denied for user 'root@localhost' (using password: NO)

What can be wrong?


I was able to fix this issue by selecting MySQL Fabric Management Node in Connection Method dropdown.

Click "Test Connection" button.
