MySQL command line

Problems with the Mac OS X version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

MySQL command line

Postby Perad » 19. August 2008 13:18

I have installed XAMPP on my Mac. It is working great! However I have a 80MB SQL file that I need to upload.

Could someone talk me through how I do this?

All I need is the simple steps.

How to connect to mysql
How to authenticate
How to send the file.

Help with this is very much appreciated.

Look for "mysql" Command Line Tool (*should* be in the same folder as the other tools, like mysqld - the server - etc.pp.) and enter the following command in a shell:

Code: Select all
mysql --user=user --password=password database <filename.sql


where "user" and "password" is a valid MySQL User and Password, database is a valid databasename and filename.sql is your SQL File.

I can't find it. Do you know what the file is called?

All I have done is added files to the htdocs folder. I haven't made any changes to the files or file structure. With this in mind could you tell me the path to where it should be?

I think this is right. I have navigated to /Applications/xxampp/xampfiles/bin

In this folder there is a unix executable file called 'mysql'

Unfortunately I cannot work out how to access this. If I type in the command above it comes up with

-bash: mysql: command not found




If I double click it the terminal opens and says the following.
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/var/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)
logout

[Process completed]

Sorry for the recent stream of updates I have the console working now. However I am now stuck. It is eating my commands but noting is happening.

/Applications/xxampp/xampfiles/bin/mysql is the file I am double clicking to launch the console.

My User/Pass are root/blank

Could someone help me upload this file.

No matter what I put into the terminal it is eating my commands. For example.

mysql> mysql --user=root --password= database </Users/jasonstanley/Desktop/database.sql
->


There are no confirmations. I'm confused.

Am I on the right thing? If so could someone tell me what I am doing wrong.

This is wrong and it is *not* what i told you.

You have to open a shell (a console) and change directory to
/Applications/xxampp/xampfiles/bin.

There you must enter this command (obiously you have to prefex mysql with the current folder './' as your user does not look in current folder for executables - thats what the error message "-bash: mysql: command not found" means!):

Code: Select all
./mysql --user=user --password=password database <filename.sql

*sigh*

As someone who knows nothing about consoles that was not so obvious.

The file is now being executed without issues. 8)

Thanks for your for your time and patience
