MySql Workbench Couldn’t find section mysqld in the remote config file /etc/mysql/my.cnf

if you get this trying to connect to your remote server using MySql Workbench, then try to (on your remote server) navigate to /etc/mysql/my.cnf and add

[mysqld] 

then it should look like:

!includedir /etc/mysql/conf.d/ [mysqld] !includedir /etc/mysql/mysql.conf.d/
