MySQL Workbench could not connect to the SSH Server, how to solve?

I've recently had to change the SSH keys of my hosts, due to them being virtualized clones. The problem is that now I don't know how to make MySQL Workbench connect with SSH. It gives me a warning stating that the public key changed (correct), then it gives me a generic error: "Could not acquire management access for administration System Error:"

Testing the connection will instead simply state Test Connection ERROR.

So, how do I make the workbench acknowledge the new SSH key and fix the warnings?

Possibly important to state, before I changed the keys, I could connect without a problem with the workbench SSH.

    The documentation wasn't helpful. After some messing around I found out that the problem was because I forgot to delete the line from my user's known_hosts file regarding the old fingerprint. (/home/username/.ssh/known_hosts)
