I'm having the same issue. On the video [called Database Foundations/Installing MySQL Server and Workbench on OS X], the older version of the workbench is displayed. Now the most recent mysql workbench version is 6.1.4, which has a totally different interface. The video states that we have to select the server administration option in order to configure a new connection; however, the version 6.1.4 doesn't even offer this option which creates an air of ambiguity of whether we're actually connecting to the localhost, or if its automatically done for us.
Could someone check out this comparison and provide some feedback/assurance on what needs to be done?
