Hi, it sounds like your moodle installation is working OK and you want to connect to the database separately.

If so, I see an error in your pasted command line, it should look more like this:

mysql -uroot -p

mysql is the name of the mysql client, -u is followed by the username root and then -p will prompt you for a password after hitting enter.

Hope this helps and please let us know if we can assist further
