Note:

When you created your RDC MySQL database, you received information that you need to connect to your database:

If you no longer have this information, email the RDC Administration group for help.

To access your MySQL database from a command-line client:

  1. At the command prompt, enter the following (replace root_username with your MySQL database login):
      mysql --host=sasrdsmp01.uits.iu.edu --port=3306 -u root_username -p
    
    Note:
    For security reasons, do not enter your password on the MySQL command line.
  2. When prompted, enter your MySQL database password.
  3. When you log in successfully, you will be placed at the MySQL prompt (mysql>).
