Execute mysql command from shell

2010-02-04 84 words 1 min read

phpMyAdmin is a very slow application if you want to execute a query on your database. If you know the name of the database then any GUI tool is an overhead. So I have written a one liner shell script to do that for me 🙂

Here’s the script:

echo ”select * from table where field like ”%$1%””|mysql -h doamin.com -u amit -p -D amit -r –password=hello

When run with one argument it will execute the sql query directly without asking for password also.
