We can also use graphic tools to connect to this MySQL server.

In my case, I'll be using TablePlus, but any tool will work the same.

Add a new connection using the following settings

  • host:
  • user: root
  • password: You choose this in the installation
  • port: 3306 (default)

Then you can test the connection and connect to it.


That's it we installed MySQL and are able to connect to it!
