Using Xampp, How to access mariadb from command prompt win8

Postby LivingLearning » 24. October 2017 14:22

Hi, Trying to learn how all this web server stuff works and filling in the pieces, lol.
My q is, Using Xampp, how do I connect to mariadb from the command prompt in win8.
I'm trying to find it, but i cannot locate where the 'dir' is, or maybe it's a path issue.
Xampp installed in: c:/xampp
Also, No 'mysql' dir's in any ../Program Files* directories.
I chose c:/xampp for install, so shouldn't all the related server stuff be installed under that path.
I am running latest ver of Xampp from the main ApacheFriends site.
Any advice.

Hi,

XAMPPs MariaDB is saved in \xampp\mysql\, so the binaries are at \xampp\mysql\bin\.
To access it you can simply use the XAMPP Shell (Button in your XAMPP control panel). This Shell sets some temporäry PATH variables to the bin directories of XAMPP for your convenience.

best wishes,
