I'm going to blush when I look back at this some time but for the moment I'm stuck and need help.
I have just started learning MySQL and don't seem to be able to get past page 1. My book proposes various ways of logging on to MySQL including TelNET, SSH and MySQL client. I've successfully accessed my database via MySQL-Front but that's not giving me the command-line entry that I need.
My book confidently states 'whichever method and operating system you use, you'll end up at a command line'....but I haven't!
