Posted by teejay on December 9, 2009

Let's face it. Using the console for administrating MySQL can eat up a lot of time unless you've been doing just that your whole web development career.

If you're on that side, good for you. But for us 'normal' people, we tend to use GUI's for managing MySQL databases. And installing softwares can be cumbersome.

Here are 8 web-based GUI's for managing MySQL

phpMyAdmin

This is probably the most common web-based GUI of all. It is the default GUI of Cpanel. It is also the default GUI for XAMPP and WAMP, two great Apache-MySQL-PHP packages.

MySQL Sidu

Sidu, which stands for 'SELECT', 'INSERT', 'DELETE', 'UPDATE' is a fantastic alternative to phpMyAdmin. It has better usability by using trees representing databases and tables and many many more.

Aero SQL

AeroSQL is a fully functional GUI for MySQL built with the ExtJS Library. It is required if you want to use this.

VFront

Vfront is a dynamic front-end for MySQL AND PostreSQL. It uses AJAX to help with usability and eye candy. It can do pretty much what phpMyAdmin does PLUS the reports. It is licensed under GPL.

SQL Buddy

phpMyBackupPro

Adminer

This is primarily a database schema designer but can also be used for managing MySQL databases

I guess we aren't running out of great open source web-based GUIs for MySQL.
