Re: Can't connect to MySQL server on '' (61)

I'm getting the same error message when I try to create a new connection in MySQL Workbench on Mac OS Yosemite.

I have tried the following commands in terminal:

/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql -u root # connects
/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql -u root -h localhost # connects
/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql -u root -h # generates 'Subject' error

It seems like Workbench is converting 'localhost' to '' and effectively causing the error. Is that possible?
