    Good morning,

    Is there a tutorial available for installing MySQL that entails logging in and performing functions from the Linux command line as opposed to the various applications that allow users to run queries in the GUI environment? I am running the latest version of CentOS. I saw a similar article for Debian, and was wondering if there was something out there for CentOS? Also, is there a PHP tutorial available as well?

    Thank you,

    I dont know of any but logging in to mysql from the command line is fairly trivial

    mysql -u username -p database_name
    mysql --help
    for the other options
