Mysql question


Is there a file that Mysql uses to store database info/user and password info so you don't have to do any mysql> command line stuff?
I highly doubt there is but it would be a lot easier if it was the case.

Hmm...I think you're missing the point entirely. The mysql> prompts are to query the database(s) directly from the console(add, select, update, delete, drop). There are in fact several gui programs for manipulating mysql, one of the best being webmin. Don't forget that a database is merely for storing and fetching data. What you do with that data is the important and creative part.
