Need to update FAQ instructions for connecting to MySQL Workbench


The instructions are accurate if trying to connect to v3 Local by Flywheel.

But if migrating to v5, one cannot just change the port number to match the new port number given by the v5 version of one’s website.

One must also change the Hostname entry in MySQL Workbench to localhost.

The screenshot and directions are misleading and confusing because v5 does NOT even have a Remote Host field in its listing.
After 2 days of hair pulling, I replaced the field that had an IP address (Remote Host IP address - for my v3 connection) with localhost and it worked.

Please keep the instructions for v3 up, as is, but then add a supplemental screenshot and entry that is specific to v5.
