Re: mysql [database connectivity] in shell scripting hpux

The question is not clear. But can you please post how you manually connect to mysql from the command prompt. So, it would be easy for us to automate.

Shalom,

The mysql client/database server manager is at a different location than Linux. But the command line and interactive commands are the same, they were merely ported and compiled on HP-UX, by HP, if you used mysql from the HP Web suite on http://software.hp.com (search Internet Express).

Re: mysql [database connectivity] in shell scripting hpux

If I get your question clearly, yes - the databases can be connected through the script. Few of them, using the scripts to start and stop the databases.

I had an old note reg. mysql for Linux. May be you can try it from the command prompt.

mysqladmin -uUSERNAME -pPASSWORD

Check in /sbin/init.d whether there is a script related to mysql (mysql.server, etc.)

Re: mysql [database connectivity] in shell scripting hpux

You can do it. You do the sequence of commands you use manually line by line in the script file and automate it. The end point is you connect to database and pass the SQL statements from the script.

Something like this:

#!/usr/bin/sh
mysql -u username -ppassword -D dbname <SELECT * from table;
EOF

Save and execute script as follows:
$ chmod +x script.sh
$ ./script.sh
