- There are many MySQL Clients(or database administration tools) out there - MySQL Front End, Tora, mysql etc. But in the web environment, one client rules - phpMyAdmin. phpMyAdmin is a PHP based(obviously) GUI administration tool for MySQL.
- If you are working on the LAMP Platform, you would have encountered the MySQL Database administration tool 'phpMyAdmin'. Almost all web control panels provide phpMyAdmin for managing the database. Its a great software - it has a lot of features. But there is a price associated with having that much features - its bulky. It takes some time to load and use. And since it is on the web, that makes it even slower.
