phpMyAdmin is an open source tool written in PHP intended to handle the administration of MySQL over the World Wide Web. It can perform various tasks such as creating, modifying or deleting databases, tables, fields or rows; executing SQL statements; or managing users and permissions.



Tobias Ratschiller, then an IT consultant and later founder of the software company Maguma, started to work on a PHP-based web front-end to MySQL in 1998, inspired by Peter Kuppelwieser's MySQL-Webadmin. He gave up the project (and phpAdsNew, of which he was also the original author) in 2000 because of lack of time.

By that time, phpMyAdmin had already become one of the most popular PHP applications and MySQL administration tools, with a large community of users and contributors. In order to coordinate the growing number of patches, a group of three developers, Olivier Müller, Marc Delisle and Loïc Chapeaux, registered The phpMyAdmin Project at and took over the development in 2001.

Similar products

Another very similar tool, phpPgAdmin, provides similar functionality for PostgreSQL. It originally started as a fork of phpMyAdmin, but is now a completely different code base.[citation needed]

There are tools for managing Microsoft SQL Server such as phpMSAdmin or myLittleAdmin. Though they borrow design principles from phpMyAdmin, they were written entirely from scratch and include no code from phpMyAdmin.[citation needed]

There is a similar lightweight tool for managing MySQL databases called Adminer (previously phpMinAdmin), which has all the most important features of phpMyAdmin, but consists of only one PHP file.[4]
