Import a Large CSV file to MySQL commend line

Using the mysqlimport utility run below command.

mysqlimport  --ignore-lines=1 --fields-terminated-by=,--columns='ID,
columnName1,columnname2, columnname3' --local -u root -p 
Databasename /pathtocsvfile/tablename.csv

You must put the absolute path of the csv file for it to register with 
the utility. The “tablename.csv” has to match the name of the table in 
your mysql database.
