    Unanswered: Database viewing/manipulation via webpage

    Hello,

    I am a student working on my senior project, we are creating a back end admin webpage and would like to be able to view/update a database through our website, we have created the database through mySQL created at myPHPadmin, and we use dreamhost.com as our webhost.

    so what we would like to happen is type in our url/admin to login in to view/update the database located at myPHPadmin

    is there an application that we can use, if not does anyone know what and how the scripting works?

    whats wrong with using PHPMyAdmin, after all it is a PHP scripted db admin tool for MySQL. if it doesn't provide enough functionality then you will have to roll your own or consider using something like MySQL Workbench which rolls the design, admin & query toolsets into one package

    database manipulation

    Thanks for your reply, we do have the database set up through myPHPadmin, we wanted to establish a connection to a table in the database to view and manipulate through our back end admin webpage.

    What we decided to do was just create a link to the the myPHPadmin website, this adds another layer of security.

    but we wanted to see if we would be able to do something like that through the website.
