I have mysql running in my fedora system. I have xampp setup on the system and php projects present in the webspace are working fine. PhpMyAdmin is working fine. echoing
phpinfo() in a PHP script also shows mysql enabled. But running mysql connect command
mysql -u[username] -p[password]
Gives this -
bash: mysql: command not found
How do I fix that? Any pointers?
I guess I need to do some pointing (define some path in some file) so that my system knows that mysql is installed. What exactly do I have to do?
This system was someone else's and he is not available here. May be PHP/Mysql was setup already in the system. I just freshly extracted xampp for linux into
/opt/lampp/ and have put all the above mentioned things (PHP projects and PhpMyAdmin) there. After doing that I had a socket problem (PhpMyAdmin was not working and showing this)-
#2002 - The server is not responding (or the local MySQL server's socket is not correctly configured)
I restarted lampp using
./lampp restart but problem remained. Then after turning on system today, I started lampp and everything worked just fine. No project issues anymore only command line Mysql not working
