What is phpMyAdmin for Mac

phpMyAdmin is intended to handle the administration of MySQL over the Web. Currently it can:

  • Create and drop databases
  • Create, copy, drop, and alter tables
  • Delete, edit, and add fields
  • Execute any SQL-statement, even batch-queries
  • Manage keys on fields
  • Load text files into tables
  • Create and read dumps of tables
  • Export data to CSV values
  • Administer multiple servers and single databases

Note: While the software is classified as free, it is actually donationware. Please consider making a donation to help support development.

While not specifically an OS X app, it is appreciated to see updates here. Also, it's certainly one of the most handy tools in a developer's tool belt on any server running MySQL.

The download link is wrong, it goes to release notes. So instead click on the Development team link, then you'll find downloads in different formats on the right of the window.

MAMP does indeed simplify Life in a big way. Other stuff is usually NerdWare. If the world were run by nerds we'd have to get out of the car to change a red light to a green one by hand lol Nerd motto: "make sure things are as complex as possible".

I'm tired of hunting for tutorials and finding installation procedures for out of date versions. This should have an installer that can get it in and working in under a minute. If someone made an installer for phpmyadmin that could install it in a couple clicks I'd pay $100 on the spot for it right now. My time is worth to much to me to keep screwing around trying to learn how to get it installed.

This is back to being my favourite application. I find it indispensible for MySQL administration. The past few versions have been rock-solid. Setup is still a little tricky, but has been improved considerably with the setup scripts.

Anyone interested in this might also want to check out "MySQL Administrator." (http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/administrator/1.1.html). It doesn't look like it would work remotely, but on the other hand it is an actual program, not a collection of PHP scripts. It seems pretty well organized, while in my every-so-often use of phpMyAdmin, that program has always seemed confusingly organized.

Wow - up until this version (2.8) everything was great. I cannot for the life of me get this version to work, despite following the instructions to the letter. I get errors such as "A session is active. You cannot change the session module's ini settings at this time", even when I try using the setup script. I love this app. I hope this is a bug that will be fixed soon, or that it is something that can be solved by better documentation. For right now, I can't use it.

This is the best and easiest way that I've found to run your databases. Easy to: create, copy, export, update etc. If you haven't tried it, what's stopping you? It's free! To the guy with the setup problems... It's a little scary the first time but all you usually need to do is edit the config file to add the mySQL:username, mySQL:password and the directory where the site files are (which is probably the toughest part). All the other options(very many) were fine for me at the defaults. The only problem that I've had is that on very large sql files (over 500k of inserts), it sometimes chokes. I'm not sure if this is a phpMyAdmin, browser or server problem. (It says maximum 2048k) The same data in a csv file works as an import but it's also smaller in bytes. I use it for home tinkering and remotely on a 34 site server.

This is simply the best way to manually interact with a mySQL database. I use it both on my webserver and on my PowerBook for local testing. It has a very good graphical interface that gives the user access to just about any controls on the database or table. I suppose if I had to fault it for anything, it would be it's comprehensive features. It can be simply overwhelming to a new user. But to novices, I'd say, just sit down to take the time to learn it. The mySQL manual is relatively easy to understand, although there's a lot of information in it.

This is the best tool possible for interfacing with a common DBMS. A great way for learning SQL through the interface which explains all operations performed. The beginners to DBMS stuff are more than welcome, if they can handle the setup process :) - consider that as an initiation for this side of information technology.

Awesome app. I live by this baby and there is sooo much you can do with it. The interface IS a bit intimidating but once you get over that, you are ready to roll. As for comparing it to Navicat... Navicat is just as superb as phpMyAdmin and has a much cleaner and easier to use interface... however it also costs $99 while this app is free.

Excellent tool for administering your MySQL setup. Someone commented that Navicat is better...I personally think that they have relatively equivilant feature sets (though Navicat has a nice cocoa interface). The biggest difference is that Navicat costs and phpMyAdmin is free. I won't pay simply for a slicker GUI.
