MySQL Configuration

If I configure MySQL on ServerA & ServerB, on ServerB, can I issue a command on ServerA: mysql -uroot -p -hServerB in order to return the result to ServerA ?

Is it possible for ServerA be a sql client such that I don't need to install the mysql on it ? Any configuration guide ? Tks

You can use the 'msyql' command line program to get results from a different server and the results will show on the 'msyql' command line you are viewing.  The 'msyql' command line program is part of the installation of the MySQL server.  I do not know if it is available separately.

Many other programs are available to do that including MySQL Workbench but all the ones I know of are GUI programs, not command line programs.  phpMyAdmin can be set up to access remote MySQL server also if you have it running on ServerA's web server.

To clarify, both servers need to install with mySQL first. And I can issue sql command on ServerB to get the result on Server A, ie

Server B#mysql -uroot -p  -h Server A

Correct ?

Is it possible to configure a mySQL proxy ?

Dave BaldwinFixer of ProblemsCommented:
Yes, you can connect to a different server.  Note that you have to use the username and password that exists on the other server to do that.

I don't know what a MySQL proxy would be.
