I'm entirely new to XAMPP, in fact i'm not even 100% sure what it's used for. I downloaded the program because it was a requirement for a class i'm taking on MySQL databases.
I've figured out how to start the MySQL database, and now i'm trying to start the MySQL monitor to do my first assignment, however I'm finding the instructions in my textbook don't work, and the lessons from my teacher simply say to read the textbook.
The book tells me to type the following into terminal:
- Code: Select all
$ mysql --user=root
terminal tells me that this command cannot be found. When i used the Manager program supplied with XAMPP, if i click on configure to open Console, Console tells me that I don't have permission to access the resource. I'm sure I need to type in a password somewhere, but I'm unsure where.
Any help is greatly appreciated. I am entirely new to this subject of computers (I've done a lot of programming before, but never done any networking), and I'm getting pretty stressed out.
