This issue usually results from an incorrect service name reference. This arises when the MySQL Workbench contains   a reference to an older service name (e.g. mysql), whereas MySQL Server 8.0.x uses the service name MySQL80.

Check the Name of the Required Service

  • Open the Services Desktop app from the Windows menu.


  • Then search the list of services to identify the name of the MySQL service.


Correct the Reference in MySQL Workbench

  • Open MySQL Workbench.
  • In the Server menu select Management Access Settings.

  • In the Manage Server Connections dialog update the Window Service Name to match the service name identified earlier.
