Hi Have a look at <a href=”http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/mysql-commands.html”>this howto</a>

—————

The above article covers only commands when you are already in a mysql session.

To start a mysql session you could issue a command like this in the linux terminal:

<pre>mysql -u root -p</pre>

“You can access the MySQL CLI using the mysql command followed by the -u option for the username and -p, which tells MySQL to prompt for a password.”
