How to clear all tables from a MySQL database.

Sometimes you may be in a situation where you need to clear out a database with out actually deleting the database, Maybe the database is on a hosted service that doesn’t allow you root access, or they do not give you phpMyAdmin access (By the way don’t ever use that!).  I actually ran into this very scenario, so I need to figure out a fast way to nuke the database from the Linux command line, with out root access. So I wrote this little shell script to do the job for me.

 

I'm coming back!

Hey Folks, I know it has been a while since I have posted anything, or made a video.  Well, I am coming back, 2019 the channel will re-start, not really a re-boot, but just pick up where I left off.  I will still make the same Linux related content, some technical, some gaming stuff, going to add VR to the list, in fact my first video will be about my experiences using VR in Linux.  It's been quite interesting.
