Section 6: Using MySQL and PHP (2/29/08) phpMyAdmin: An Overview phpMyAdmin is a GUI front-end for administering MySQL databases via a web browser. We have phpMyAdmin installed on the 230 server; check it out at . Your login information is the same as it is for the 230 site. All the common commands you might wish to run on a MySQL server can be run via phpMyAdmin. You can select databases with the pulldown at left, and then (when you've got >= 1 table in your database) select which table to work with by clicking on a link below the pulldown. Let's take a look at the top level navigation of phpMyAdmin: Structure: Lets you create and update tables in your database. Browse: Basically, a SELECT * on your table. SQL: A textarea where you can enter SQL commands, as in homework 1. Search: Run SELECT queries using a form interface for setting WHERE or LIKE clauses. Insert: Enter data into your table. Import: Upload a file full of SQL commands and run them all on the database. Export: Create backups of your database tables and their content as SQL statements. Empty: Remove all data from a given table. Drop: Delete the table (obviously also removes all its data). Operations: Ignore this for now.
