This week I created a new Maria DB instance, handed them over to the app guys who had some scripts to create the database and all the objects.
However once this was created they could not connect to it via MySQL Workbench, it would connect but they could not see any tables it was saying fetching,
Simple fix to try, on the database server, try running mysql_upgrade. This updated all the tables then they could connect.
