phpMyAdmin

By far the easiest way to handle MySql administration, and I love it more every day. I am getting more and more into DB administration, and needed a way to access these files without direct access to the server. I started with some VPN type style, even though I knew I needed to get into phpMyAdmin. Sometimes I think the new will just take too long to get used to so I push it off, but I gave in hoping the time spent learning the program would be made up for in time saved using old school text editing and VPN work.
Long story short, I was right. Administration of the many sites that are getting more and more users has become simple enough I can show many clients how to do it themselves (though I am more than happy to do simple DB administration myself). WordPress does a lot of the start up work on its own, so really it is just clean up and administration. The web interface has to be the number one positive, and the only negative I have found is the new MyAdmin does not work with very old php, it dropped compatibility code for older PHP and MySQL versions; version 3 and later requires at least PHP 5.2 and MySQL 5. Overall I love it, and I think it will be a great help to many clients.
