In order to register a MySQL server, you need to fill out the dialog below, reached via the Server Manager and the Register Server button.


Register a MySQL Server


Database Workbench needs the following information:


An user-defined alias name for the server - this is only used inside Database Workbench.


An Enterprise Manager folder for grouping your server registrations.


Hostname or IP address of the machine where the MySQL server process is running.


The port at which the server process is listening for connections.


The default username for databases.


The password for the username given.

Use compression protocol

Enables the use of network compression.


If you click OK, Database Workbench will test the connection - if this succeeds, the server will be registered and added to the Servers node in the Enterprise Manager.


There are additional options for network tunneling available on the extra tabs, or SSL options for a secure connection.
