I am trying to explain the tools that enable you to manage or access to a MySQL server through graphical interfaces. Among these are the three most well-known phpMyAdmin GUI programs provided by MySQL AB: MySQL Administrator, MySQL Query Browser and MySQL Migration Toolkit. PhpMyAdmin is probably one of the most popular software ever in the world wide web. It is indeed an open source tool written in PHP, which allows the administration of MySQL through a web interface. PhpMyAdmin is developed by a community in isolation from MySQL AB is a web-based and therefore requires a web server capable of running PHP. Its main facilities is to allow the administration of the database from a remote server without the need to be open to remote connections: it is the web server that runs phpMyAdmin making connections to MySQL. Therefore you need to install the software on the local web server than MySQL to be able to carry out the administration through any browser. Access to the server is done with the rights of the user accessing the application.
