Can’t connect to MySQL server on ‘’ (61) on Mac

Having some trouble creating a mysql connection. The mysql instance is running in system preferences and I have made sure the mysql config file is in the right location(Test settings passed). When I go into Test DB connections I get red cross on all three sections.(open database connections, get server version, get server OS). Running mac 10.10.2. Set connection name as home hostname as, port as 3306, username as root, password as my computers root password and default schema as home as well. Any ideas?
