MySQL command line

Problems with the Windows version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

MySQL command line

Postby danielward » 27. March 2008 17:32

I double-clicked mysql_start in the V:XAMPP to start MySQL. In the window that came up it said:
Please wait ....
MySQL is starting with mysql\bin\mycnf <console>
080327 11:26:26 [Note] mysql\bin\mysqld: ready for connections.
Version: '5.0.51a' socket: '' port : 3306 Source distribution

I don't get a command line prompt so that I can enter MySQL commands.
I am using a networked VISTA OS.

Is there any solution for this?

Of course not, you only started the mysql server which runs in the background and serves the requests.

Yes, you must start the command line mysql interpreter. Open a Shell (cmd.exe) and change directory to the bin-folder which contains the mysql client "mysql.exe" and enter "mysql" and hit return.

Thank you very much.
To start the MySQL command line interpreter, I had to enter: E:\mysql\bin>mysql -u root
