Upgrade my MySql Workbench 6.3.4 to 8.x fails in db connect

I've been using MySql Workbench 6.3.4 for several years and decided to upgrade to 8.0.19. The upgrade works fine in that the application starts, i can see local table definitions and some ERDs. The issue occurs when I try to connect to my MySql database (5.7.26).

Whereas the 6.3.4 version works with a socket connection, the same connection (copied by the install i am assuming from from the 6.3.4 install) on 8.0.19 does not work. I get a "failed to connect to mysql using local socket/pipe at /applications/mamp/tmp/mysql/mysql.sock with user steve" - wrong or unknown protocol.

I've tried converting to tcp/ip with the same issue - no connection. I am assuming something has change in 8.0.19 that wrecks the previously working connection.

Anyone have any ideas?
