Hey Alexander,

I was wondering about connecting cpanel and MySQL workbench too.

I stumbled across this resource when trying to figure it out: Connecting to a database with MySQL Workbench 5.2

As far as the password goes the link above says this: Password: cPanel password or the password for the database user that was created.

Hopefully that helps?
