I'm trying to install Drupal, how do I find out what version of MySQL I have?
I don't use a GUI Admin... I connect, apart from doing so with PHP and JSP, thru unix shell.... (this is locally on my mac)
is there a command in command-line client to find out what version I have?
I went to MySQL folder where it's installed but couldn't find in there..
oh man.... NEVER MIND.... it tells you when you log in.. I had never noticed this...
I see you found the answer. Here's another: Run the query "SHOW VARIABLES", and look at the "version" line.
and another, from the mysql command prompt type
I'm not sure where it's documented, but like sql server, mysql supports select @@version
