Some good terminal commands to MySQL

Some good terminal commands to MySQL are:

Type on terminal to:

Change root password:
/usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root password "new_password"

Log without password
# mysql

If it output:
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)

That shows that mysql does not allow access as root without password.

If you log without a password it is good to put a password, use the same command to change root password.

Log with root user
# mysql -u root -p

Show databases
# show databases;

Choose a database
# use name_of_your_database;

Show tables;
# show tables;

Show MySQL users;
# select * from mysql.user;

Run a script
# source your_script.sql;

Give all privilege to a user
# grant all privileges on *.* to 'user'@localhost identified by 'your_password' WITH GRANT OPTION;

# flush privileges;

A good step by step Ubuntu 8.10 tutorial

Below there is a link to a step by step tutorial about installing Ubuntu 8.10, the author called it as "The Perfect Desktop - Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex)".

I think that's a good tutorial for someone who is starting to use Ubuntu and you can use it to install Ubuntu 8.10 without having problems, of course you do not have to install all the programs he likes but I think that a lot of programs he likes is good to have on a linux desktop.

Have fun!!!
