    when trying to invoke the command:

    mysqld -u root -p
    I get a error saying:
    -bash: mysqld: command not found
    but if I go "man mysqld" the manual pages for mysqld appears. What seems to be wrong?

    that's wrong, as you would try to run the server using mysqld.

    The client for this is just mysql.

    mysql -u [username] -p
    Do not enter the password, as it will prompt you for this.
