    How to connect with MySQL in Ubuntu?

    Hi,

    I've installed XAMPP on my Ubuntu machine successfully. Everything is running fine. I can start all services by issuing the following command:

    Code:
    sudo /opt/lampp/lampp start
    All services starts successfully.

    Now I need to test MySQL from terminal, but when I'm giving the following command:

    Code:
    mysql -u root
    to set root password. Or

    Code:
    mysql -u root -p
    it's showing the following message:

    Code:
    The program 'mysql' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:sudo apt-get install mysql-client-core-5.5
    I can't understand where the problem is. Please help me on this regard.

    Thanks in advance.

    try
    Code:
    /opt/lampp/bin/mysql -u root
    afaik, it is best to install mysql/php/apache from the Ubuntu repositories directly because security updates are provided automatically
    Don't waste your energy trying to change opinions ... Do your thing, and don't care if they like it.
