Creating and Working with a MySQL Database

The key to using MySQL is an understanding of the SQL syntax itself. If you've used Oracle or another SQL-based system, you'll be right at home interacting with MySQL. For beginners, this introduction should be enough to get started, but we recommend a more complete text such as MySQL, 2nd Edition (ISBN: 0-7357-1212-3).

To start MySQL, invoke the client (mysql) using mysql -u<username> -p<password>. To start, only the root account is available. If you didn't set the password for root, no password is required.
