After loading the XAMPP MySQL/PHP onto Fedora 6, I seem to have it working with the default settings. But now I am trying to learn MySQL, & PHP to create dynamic webpages, and I can't seem to get to the Command line with the regular commands that I find on different Webpage documents. Is there an Addon to give me the needed extras to make it equivalent to the standard MySQL installation?
I guess I need to be able to get to a "MySQL>" prompt?
I saw the place on the webpage adminitrator interface but I don't know if that is the correct place to enter commands.
Also are there "limitations" to using the "XAMPP" version of MySQL/PHP rather than try to install the needed modules separately?
