How to output my MySql query results to a CSV file on the command line

Written by Ian Carnaghan · 14 sec read >

Type in the following command

SELECT id,clientid,company FROM config INTO OUTFILE '/tmp/List.csv' FIELDS TERMINATED BY ',' LINES TERMINATED BY '\n';

The command above will output the results from the MySql query into a Comma Separated File called List.csv, it will split the columns by using a comma “,” and will terminate every new line with the line break character \n
