Use phpmyadmin to manage mySQL databases UNIX
I published a pointer to this program earlier, but it was buried with some other mySQL information, and I felt it was worth its own article.

If you use mySQL databases on OS X, phpmyadmin is one of the better database administration programs I've run across. It's free, and it gives you browser-based access to all your databases. You can add and delete tables, databases, and records, create queries, change data, etc., all from your favorite web browser.

You can find phpmyadmin on the web site. The latest version is on the downloads page.

Until recently, phpmyadmin did not get along nicely with OmniWeb (the database names wouldn't show up, making it tough to use the program!). However, there's a release candidate of phpmyadmin 2.2 on the site, and it works very nicely with OmniWeb. There may be a couple of bugs, but I didn't find anything major in 30 minutes of working with it at lunch today. If you're working with version 4 of PHP, make sure you download the version for .PHP files (not .PHP3 files).
