You will have to use the mysql command line tool, which is normally
called mysql and should be located in the mysql/bin directory.


mysql -u [username] -p

and replace [username] for the username you will use to login to mysql,
you will be prompted for a password because of the -p option.

Hi, I did some googling, and found that there doesn't seem to be a pure python MySQL communication module. There is one for perl however, Net::MySQL.

I briefly scanned through the perl source for Net::MySQL, and there doesn't seem to be anything that couldn't be done in Python, but...

Hello, When I do a "AND" in a SQL query, eg. SELECT NAME WHERE SEX="male" AND AGE= "30", MySQL does a sub-search, right? i.e. it does the "WHERE SEX=male" first, and then searches through the list of *those* results to see if AGE=30? Does it do this from left to right? i.e. in the query above, would the table always, and necessarily, get searched for "SEX=male" first, and "AGE=30" second?

Hello! I have problem: I have IPB forum installed. After search in IPB (search takes about 3-4 seconds for post table about 300 000 records) mysql shows "Sending Data" status and takes about 3-5 minutes. I tested with PHP 5.2, PHP 4.4, PHP 4.2.3 - with same results. I switched from MySQL 4.2.18 to 4.2.21 and 4.2.22 with same result.
