Testing The MySQL Installation
You can test whether the MySQL server is working by executing any of the following commands:
C:\ "C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.6\bin\mysqlshow"
C:\ "C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.6\bin\mysqlshow" -u root mysql
C:\ "C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.6\bin\mysqladmin" version status proc
C:\ "C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.6\bin\mysql" test
If mysqld is slow to respond to TCP/IP connections from client programs, there is probably a problem
with your DNS. In this case, start mysqld with the --skip-name-resolve  option and use
only localhost and IP addresses in the Host column of the MySQL grant tables.
You can force a MySQL client to use a named-pipe connection rather than TCP/IP by specifying the --
pipe  or --protocol=PIPE  option, or by specifying . (period) as the host name. Use
the --socket  option to specify the name of the pipe if you do not want to use the default pipe
Note that if you have set a password for the root account, deleted the anonymous account, or created
a new user account, then you must use the appropriate -u and -p options with the commands shown
above to connect with the MySQL Server. See Section 4.2.2, “Connecting to the MySQL Server”.

and Column Information”.
