A Lightweight MySQL Manager

Filed under
Software

If you own a website, chances are that you need to use a database to run many site operations. For the most part, people use MySQL.

Most hosts offer a solution to manage your database. A common choice for this is phpMyAdmin. But, for many, phpMyAdmin can be slow or feel bloated on slower connections.

Then, there is the group of people who aren’t offered the luxury of phpMyAdmin or even SSH. There is no way to access the database unless you install your own software.
I was one of those unlucky people working on an unnamed server without a MySQL management area. At first, I tried to install phpMyAdmin. While powerful, it is a massive download and takes a lot of configuration to get working.

I googled for a PHP MySQL manager. One of the results that I got was a sweet little app called tinyMy.

Full Story.
