Conflict with existing Arma2 SQL database?


I am following the installation guide at  http://www.exilemod.com/topic/8368-server-installationupgrade-guide-0941-clementine/ and had posted my issue there but it may be more appropriate in a separate thread since it is SQL database-specific...

I'm not a database person but have had an Arma2/DayZ server using SQL that was installed as part of XAMPP (using port 3306).  I'm following the documentation but I downloaded the latest workbench - version 6.3.6.  When I select full install, I never get the "check requirements" window or the option to select the config type.  It just goes through, installs whatever it installs and then asks whether I want to launch workbench.  So I also never get to configure a root password.  So is it picking up the database install from XAMPP?  The Arma2 variant sets the username as root with no password.  So is this what it is using (and therefore I should use when configuring an Exile schema?  And since A2/Dayz already uses database port 3306, should I use a different port for Exile?  So when I launch workbench, it already sees my A2 database.  I also don't have a MySQL57 service.  It's just MySQL - I assume because of the XAMPP install.

From there, I assume I went to create a new Exile connection but get a popup that says:

"Connection Warning:

Incompatible/nonstandard server version or connection protocol detected (10.1.9).

A connection to this database can be established but some MySQL Workbench features may not work  properly since the database is not fully compatible with the supported versions of MySQL.

MySQL workbench is developed and tested for MySQL Server versions 5.1, 5.5, 5.6, and 5.7."

When I Click "Continue Anyway", it does successfully connect (using the user=root, no password).

Before I go further, will any of this cause a problem?  Do I need to delete my XAMPP installation and start from scratch?   If so, will I be able to import my A2 database and no longer need XAMPP?  Can I still use port 3306?
