What is phpMyAdmin?
phpMyAdmin is a free software tool written in PHP, designed to manage MySQL over the Internet. phpMyAdmin supports a wide range of operations on MySQL and MariaDB databases. Frequently used operations (managing databases, tables, columns, relationships, indexes, users, permissions, etc.) can be performed through the user interface, while you still can directly execute any SQL statement.
