Nodejs connect with Mysql

To connect with MySQL, Firstly we have to install MySQL module in the Nodejs

npm i mysql --save

now create connection.js file

const mysql = require('mysql');
const config  = {
  connectionLimit : 10,
  host     : 'localhost', // Database hostname, 
  user     : 'root', // Database Username
  password : 'jnnn23nn', // Database Password,
  database : 'dbname', //Database Name

const pool = mysql.createPool(config);
// Export the pool
module.exports = pool;

// Now create server.js file

now include the connection.js file
const pool  = require('./connection');

pool.getConnection(function(err, connection) {
  if (err) {
    console.error('error in db connection');
  console.log('db is connected');
  return ;

Now run the server.js file

node server.js

Note:- if you add correct database credentials the show “db is connected” otherwise not.
