Check the X Plugin Installation

Verify that the X Plugin is installed.

An installed X Plugin is listed in the plugins list on the MySQL server, for example:

shell> mysqlsh -u user --sqlc -P 3306 -e "SHOW plugins"

MySQL Client program command:

shell> mysql -u user -p -e "SHOW plugins"

An example result if X Plugin is installed is highlighted here:
