A Chat With Adminer - A Simple, Yet Effective, Database Management tool written in PHP
May 13, 2013 @ 09:12:36

On 7PHP.com today there's a new interview with Jakub Vrana about his tool Adminser, a lightweight alternative to things like phpMyAdmin for database management.

Adminer, formerly known as phpMinAdmin, is a full-featured database management tool to be used as a more simple, effective and fast alternative to the famous PHPmyAdmin. Being curious about it, I had a chat with the creator of Adminer, Jakub Vrana.

They talk about the problem the tool tries to solve and where the idea to make it came from. There's also a bit about why to use it over something like phpMyAdmin and what the current status/future plans for it are. If you want to read an interview with Jakub about his work and experiences, you can check out this post.

Jay Allen's Blog:
Adminer | The World's Smallest MySQL Admin Script
Oct 15, 2010 @ 12:17:20

Jay Allen has found what he calls the world's smallest MySQL admin script and has posted about it to his CodingThis.com blog - Adminer.

I’ve spent years using phpMyAdmin (much to my chagrin). And I’ve recently warmed up to MySQL Workbench. But it wasn’t until this week that I stumbled across Adminer, a single-file PHP application for MySQL administration. It’s hard not to be impressed by Adminer, which is both devilishly simple and elegantly designed. The file downloads as adminer-2.3.2.php; save it as index.php in a folder named adminer, then navigate to http://servername.com/adminer/. Supply the name of your MySQL server (adding a colon if it’s hosted on a non-standard port), your username, and password, and you’re off!

He includes a few screenshots of the interface to create tables and manage them. If you've used the phpMyAdmin interface, you'll find a lot of things that are familiar in Adminer. If you're interesting in grabbing the latest source, you can pull it from SourceForge.
