I created my droplet. I followed tutorials step by step.
When I want to connect by workbench I could not do that.
My website was working perfectly. I just want to edit something in the database. I could not enter by workbench.
By following some stupid opinions of others in here. I destroyed my website.
How I can delete my droplet or make it empty and start from the beginning.

and why I cannot connect to workbench.
Everything is fine.
