mysql -u "user" -p <---- your user account without quotes

password: "password"  <---- password you think works without quotes. 

This will directly connect to the Mysql server. Substitute your "user"
without quotes and at password prompt, enter what you think is the
password without quotes again.

As far as the LAMP project goes and the fact that you are starting from
beginning, things can get somewhat difficult. When I started, I had to
read many many docs and test things daily just to get things to work
out. But once you do, things will go much smoother.
