    i'm working on a project which requires me to use linux OS to build a database(MySQL)..but the problem is that i can't run the program..i have found the directory where it is located. Can someone tell me the command to run the program..& another question is how does the program looks like? It is a graphic or text base?
    pls reply i really needed help very much.

    on command prompt window (shell)type mysql
    your database will start.

    if you have given it a pass word type mysql -p
    it will then prompt you for your password

    if the data base isn't running at all

    try this
    the path to mysqld/mysqld &

    eg.
    /usr/local/bin/mysqld &

    if this doesn't work get back
