PhpMinAdmin – nearest alternative to phpMyAdmin

18 Mar
2009

I can’t possibly tell how many times i’ve been seriously irritated  navigating to phpmyadmin option of my hosting or hostings of the projects i have worked with. Most of the cases you’ll have to click many times. And in Plesk ? It simply sucks when it comes to use phpMyAdmin from there. I’ve always used phpminiadmin as a quick alternative solution because it needs no configuration and no install. But it’s very basic and needs too much typing to get things done. Today I found phpminadmin. It’s just the name without the i in php phpminiadmin. It simply rocks!! It has nearly every option that you’d normally expect from a db admin tool. And to me, it’s a substitute to phpmyadmin for ongoing operations.

It has select, search, edit, index , create — almost everything u need. The best part is that it needs no install and it’s a single file weighing about 167KB.

But of course, i’m not saying it’s a fully alternative to phpmyadmin. No way. They have been developing this mighty tool for over nine years.  But phpminadmin surely is a very very good altenative of that for quick solutions. Check it out here.

Why didn’t I find it earlier ?  :-(

UPDATE : THE PROJECT HAS BEEN RENAMED TO “adminer” AND IS AVAILABLE at http://www.adminer.org/en/

I’m glad you are satisfied. Is there something specific what are you missing in phpMinAdmin?

Hmm, no. I think it has all the options that can be expected from a standalone file. Just came across that multiple record sets can not be edited in one page as possible in phpmyadmin. If i find more, i’ll send the wish list to sourceforge project page.

@guest : it’s not free and they don’t even have an online demo. So can’t call a phpmyadmin killer, sorry.

hi all i disliked phpMyAdmin’s interface so i decided i would built a new MySQL manager like the MySQL query browser. please if you have a change can you give it a try
github ->https://github.com/sucaritas/MyXQuery
LIVE DEMO -> http://www.farfile.com/Demos/MyXQuery/
it works like the MySQL query Browser (ctrl+enter to execute a query)
you can right click on the tree for other things too.

Phpmyadmin processes only basic functionality mysql administrators need. For more advanced functionality you can install dbforge studio for mysql. It is really professional and easy to use software from Devart http://www.devart.com/dbforge/mysql/studio/
