You now have a working MySQL installation, ready to go. Of course, the first thing we need to do is verify that it is in fact working. Testing MySQL What do we know so far about MySQL from the installation? Well, we know that we have a root account with a password, which we have just set. What else? Recall that we were quite sneaky and told the MySQL installer to place the Bin directory in the Windows PATH variable.
