We can connect to the MySQL server using the following command:

mysql -u root -p

Where:

  • -u root is used to connect as the MySQL root user (i.e. the u stands for user, and --user works as well)

  • -p tells Mysql to prompt for a password. If you have set a password, you would need to use this parameter.

If done correctly, you should see the following:

mysql>

This means that you are now connected to the MySQL server! Great, let’s start messing around with databases!

Connecting to a specific host

We can also explicitly state the server name (i.e. host name) that we are connecting to:

mysql –h localhost –u root -p

Since our server is hosted by localhost, we connect using the following: –h localhost. Note that even if we

do not supply this parameter, the command will simply assume that you are connecting to localhost by default.
