Well, not that modern Workbench wouldn't work with older versions. Mine connects sometimes to a very old NT 4 server, when I need to extract data from an ancient DB. But Oracle is Oracle, go figure...

Glad it's working anyway. And, perhaps, it was indeed a problem with config/lib.

I think the problem was that I'd inadvertently created a Frankenstein MySQL through my various installations and removals. The server would come up, but the configuration files were all fouled up, so it couldn't really do anything (like accept connections). Once I thoroughly scrubbed my system of all MySQL files, the installation went well.

I believe that part of the initial confusion was that the prime MYSQL configuration file has historically been named my.cnf

There are numerous example files for differing configurations that assume you know this.
