To accomplish the latter youll need a properly set up MySQLuser who can readwrite only the desired database. Its up to you to look upthe appropriate part in the MySQL manual.Currently phpMyAdmin can: * browse and drop databases, tables, views, fields and indexes * create, copy, drop, rename and alter databases, tables, fields and indexes * maintenance server, databases and tables, with proposals on server configuration * execute, edit and bookmark any SQLstatement, even batchqueries * load text files into tables * create^1 and read dumps of tables * export^1 data to various formats: CSV, XML, PDF, ISOIEC 26300 OpenDocument Text and Spreadsheet, Word, Excel and L^AT[E]X formats * administer multiple servers * manage MySQL users and privileges * check referential integrity in MyISAM tables * using Querybyexample (QBE), create complex queries automatically connecting required tables * create PDF graphics of your Database layout * search globally in a database or a subset of it * transform stored data into any format using a set of predefined functions, like displaying BLOBdata as image or downloadlink * support InnoDB tables and foreign keys (see FAQ 3.6) * support mysqli, the improved MySQL extension (see FAQ 1.17) * communicate in 50 different languagesA word about users:Many people have difficulty understanding the concept of user management withregards to phpMyAdmin. When a user logs in to phpMyAdmin, that username andpassword are passed directly to MySQL. phpMyAdmin does no account management onits own (other than allowing one to manipulate the MySQL user accountinformation); all users must be valid MySQL users.^1) phpMyAdmin can compress (Zip, GZip RFC 1952 or Bzip2 formats) dumps andCSV exports if you use PHP with Zlib support (withzlib) andor Bzip2 support(withbz2). Proper support may also need changes in php.ini.Installation 1. Quick Install 2. Setup script usage 3. Linkedtables infrastructure 4. Upgrading from an older version 5. Using authentication modesphpMyAdmin does not apply any special security methods to the MySQL databaseserver. It is still the system administrators job to grant permissions on theMySQL databases properly. phpMyAdmins Privileges page can be used for this.Warning for Mac users:if you are on a Mac OS version before OS X, StuffIt unstuffs with Mac formats.So youll have to resave as in BBEdit to Unix style ALL phpMyAdmin scriptsbefore uploading them to your server, as PHP seems not to like Macstyle end oflines character (r).Quick Install 1. Choose an appropriate distribution kit from the Downloads page. Some kits contain only the English messages, others contain all languages in UTF8 format (this should be fine in most situations), others contain all languages and all character sets. Well assume you chose a kit whose name looks like phpMyAdminx.x.xalllanguages.tar.gz. 2. Untar or unzip the distribution (be sure to unzip the subdirectories): tar xzvf phpMyAdmin_x.x.xalllanguages.tar.gz in your webservers document root. If you dont have direct access to your document root, put the files in a directory on your local machine, and, after step 4, transfer the directory on your web server using, for example, ftp. 3. Ensure that all the scripts have the appropriate owner (if PHP is running in safe mode, having some scripts with an owner different from the owner of other scripts will be a problem). See FAQ 4.2 and FAQ 1.26 for suggestions. 4. Now you must configure your installation. There are two methods that can be used. Traditionally, users have handedited a copy of, but now a wizardstyle setup script is provided for those who prefer a graphical installation. Creating a is still a quick way to get started and needed for some advanced features. + To manually create the file, simply use your text editor to create the file (you can copy to get minimal configuration file) in the main (toplevel) phpMyAdmin directory (the one that contains index.php). phpMyAdmin first loads libraries config.default.php and then overrides those values with anything found in If the default value is okay for a particular setting, there is no need to include it in Youll need a few directives to get going, a simple configuration may look like this: Or, if you prefer to not be prompted every time you log in: For a full explanation of possible configuration values, see the Configuration Section of this document. + Instead of manually editing, you can use the Setup Script. First you must manually create a folder config in the phpMyAdmin directory. This is a security measure. On a LinuxUnix system you can use the following commands: cd phpMyAdmin mkdir config create directory for saving chmod o+rw config give it world writable permissions And to edit an existing configuration, copy it over first: cp config copy current configuration for editing chmod o+w give it world writable permissions On other platforms, simply create the folder and ensure that your web server has read and write access to it. FAQ 1.26 can help with this. Next, open scriptssetup.php in your browser. Note that changes are not saved to disk until explicitly choose Save from the Configuration area of the screen. Normally the script saves the new to the config directory, but if the webserver does not have the proper permissions you may see the error Cannot load or save configuration. Ensure that the config directory exists and has the proper permissions or use the Download link to save the config file locally and upload
