Opening An Existing Project At Mysql Command Prompt

Recommended Posts

Re: Forums

 

       In chapter 5 I created the database sitename at MySQL command prompt.   After exiting the database I would like to open  it another time.   When entering my password at MySQL server.  I am not certain what command to type in at MySQL server command prompt to open it.  . 

 

      Understanding this question may be not be at the  newbie.  Nor beyond.  If anyone could please help?  Thank you very kindly.   George.

Hi

 

  Thank you for your response.  Brief words.  Hoping  this makes sense.  When I installed MySQL I didn't get an option to create a user name.  Just a password.  When I enter  the coding as you suggested  and also trying to implement the example coding that appears  on pages  123 and 124.   I get an error indicating that I have not entered the proper command at command line.   When just  opening  command  prompt I only have an option to enter my password.  May there be another way to get around this.  Thank you.

You aren't prompted to create a username when you install MySQL. By default, MySQL comes with one user named "root" and the password you created would be for that user. Other users are added manually.
