    Question MySQL Interface


    I installed MySQL using its RPM package but how do I view the MySQL database interface/GUI? In other words, the interface using which one can carry out various database-related tasks like creating databases, tables etc.

    Thanks,

    Ron

    The only interface mysql comes with is the command line interface for typing in SQL commands. You can access this by typing 'mysql' at the command line.

    There are a variety of tools available for gui access to mysql data, mysql-query-browser is provided by mysql and seems quite comprehensive. Others I've used are knoda and phpMyAdmin, I think all of these should be available in most linux distributions, phpMyAdmin is a web-app so might take some installation/configuration.
