January 14th, 2010, 10:06 PM
...and how to I get there. I did an XAMPP install on 9.10. Everything looks good in localhost. How do I get to the mysql shell? If I type mysql at the terminal prompt I get

jlocklear@jlocklear-latitude:/usr/bin$ mysql
The program 'mysql' can be found in the following packages:
* mysql-client-5.1
* mysql-client-5.0
Try: sudo apt-get install <selected package>
mysql: command not foundI installed xampp into my /opt/lampp folder...is there a particular directory I need to be in to run the shell?
