Connecting to MySQL

At your shell prompt type

# mysql -u <username>  --password=<password>

Where <username> and <password> are the username and password you entered when first setting up MySQL.
You may also be able to login as root like this,

# mysql -u root

without using a password, depending on how your system was setup.
