How can I access the MySQL command line with XAMPP for Windows?

Solution

Your MySQL binaries should be somewhere under your XAMPP folder. Look for a /bin folder, and you’ll find the mysql.exe client around. Let’s assume it is in c:\xampp\mysql\bin, then you should fireup a command prompt in this folder.

That means, fire up “cmd”, and type:

cd c:\xampp\mysql\bin
mysql.exe -u root --password

If you want to use mysqldump.exe, you should also find it there.

Log into your mysql server, and start typing your commands.

Hope it helps…
