Developer’s Toolbox: phpMyAdmin

Thursday, December 27th, 2007

In this second installment of the Developer’s Toolbox, I’ll be sharing with you another of my favorite tools that saves me a lot of time and energy: phpMyAdmin. As comfortable as I am doing things from the command line, there are certain tasks in MySQL that are quite tedious to do by hand. Having a user interface to use makes these tasks much easier and quicker to complete.

If MySQL is not your DB of choice, there are other applications out there for interfacing the various other database platforms (such as phpMyAdmin’s relative for PostgreSQL, phpPgAdmin), but MySQL is the most widely used and phpMyAdmin is often included or offered as a part of many basic hosting plans.

As of this writing, 2.11.3 is the most current version of phpMyAdmin. It can be downloaded at the main phpMyAdmin download page. Please follow the installation instructions found in the phpMyAdmin documentation. I’m going to show you how to use phpMyAdmin to create a new database, create tables, insert records, backup your data, and import data into your database. There are many, many other things you can do with this wonderful application, but I’ll keep it simple.
