I'm completely new to all this and just finding my way.
I want to access mysql dbs from Cmd Prompt but cannot find the right path. I have downloaded xampp directly onto c:\xampp-win32-1.7.4-VC7\xampp\ as suggested in the guide.
When I then try to access through CMD Prompt -
C:\xampp-win32-1.7.4-VC6\xampp\mysql\bin\mysql -u root -p ;
I get a request for a password: I have changed my 'root' password in phpMYadmin but not in the config.inc file but when I put in my new password it throws me out. I then try the same path with no password with the same result.
I would really appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction.
