For anyone that's wanted to try out the Heroku hosting platform but just want a bare-bones guide to getting up and running, NetTuts.com has what you're looking for.

Content with Style:
Viewing BLOB content in phpMyAdmin
Nov 20, 2009 @ 08:57:08

New from the Content with Style blog today there's a quick tip from Matthias Willerich for phpMyAdmin users who are having issues viewing the content of blob data types.

n my phpMyAdmin installation, version 3.1.1, none of the old style config settings [...] had any effect, and the solution was terribly elusive. "view blob", "show blob", "display blob", all that Google suggested were people asking the same question, at various ages of the internet.

Finally, after wading through negative comments of forums and not getting much help at all, Matthias dug into the source and found a session variable that can be set to true and the content magically appears.
