PHPMyAdmin is a free software tool written in PHP, intended to handle the administration of MySQL over the Web. PHPMyAdmin supports a wide range of operations on MySQL and MariaDB. Frequently used operations (managing databases, tables, columns, relations, indexes, users, permissions, etc) can be performed via the user interface, while you still have the ability to directly execute any SQL statement. Being built more than 2 decades ago, it's able to boast one of the most comprehensive collections of documentation for DB administration software.

  • When you want a DB administration tool that's heavily documented with a large community.
