I’m not sure exactly what I did, but I entered into MySQL and now I cannot return to the directory line.

How can I leave

mysql> cd ..

and return to

 debian@beaglebone:/home$ cd ..

This mysql> is not a directory.
It is the mysql database prompt, where you can execute mysql commands.
You can exit this CLI by typing "quit".

  • Yeah I know is not directory exactly but thanks for the help
