1.7. Mixing Command-Line and Option File Parameters

1.7.1. Problem

You’d rather not store your MySQL password in an option file, but you don’t want to enter your username and server host manually.

1.7.2. Solution

Put the username and host in the option file, but not the password. Instead, specify the password interactively when you invoke the mysql program. mysql looks both in the option file and on the command line for connection parameters. If an option is specified in both places, the one on the command line takes precedence.
