I have plesk 8.0.1 running on my server along with mysql 4.1. I'd like to use mysql through SSH, but I'm not sure what I need to do once I log into my server. I have 10 domains on this server, so I'm not sure if each domain has its own mysql path or not. Mysql noobie here just trying to learn.

If you mean from the command line, then you need to look into the "mysql" and "mysqladmin" commands.

Plesk has it's own interface to your domains, too. It uses phpMyAdmin to administer the database(s) for each domain. You can still use the command line, just know that plesk is touchy if you decide to change configuration settings at the server level.
