mysql query ?????


I tried ps -aef | grep mysqld to see if mysql daemon is running.

Mysql daemon is running.

But when I type 'mysql' from the prompt, i get a message - Command not found.

I dont know why !!!!

Do i need to install anything else ???????

Depending on how you installed it, it may simply not be in your PATH variable. Try:
locate mysql


whereis mysql

And then execute with full path:
Where /path/to/mysql
Is what you find from one of the above 2 commands, for example:
/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql -u root -p

Might be what you use.
