How to view my sql queries

Posted May 13, 2016 3.2k views

I am using a CMS based in PHP Mysql, and i want to see how each SQL query is processed when an action is triggered.

For example, when i click “view all posts”, then what exactly is the complete query that was implemented.

One option is to go through the entire, which is huge and complicated. I wonder if there is an easier way, or a program that can help me achieve it?

Many thanks!

run this in mysql


This will slow down the machine just so you know be prepared as you might see performance decrease.

  • Hello Francis,

    I’m afraid that’s not what i’m looking for. I just ran SHOW FULL PROCESSLIST; on my mysql. It gives me the user, time, state, the command (which returns if it is a query/sleep).

    What i wanted to know was the actual query. Example, “select * from tablename;” … whenever a query is run. I’m running a test server, so no worries about performance.

    Any more ideas?
