Title: PHPMyAdmin - A Real Winner!
Post by: precisonline on May 09, 2008, 06:29:54 PM
Every now and again somebody really gets it right.  I downloaded PHPMyAdmin, set it up as a vhost in my local Apache server, and everything worked perfectly the first time, with absolutely no futzing.  It discovered my local MySQL instance, loaded everything it needed, and I was in business in under 2 minutes.

That's the future of software my friends.  I know this is just a tool, but that ease of installation and flawless execution is the goal.  I wish I could say the same of some of the other products I've tried lately, but ... I just can't.

Kevin,

Have you used Webmin <http://webmin.com (http://webmin.com)>?  It even plays nice on AIX.

I use webmin a lot.  I use the custom command feature to give an easy button for ppl to use scripts and bash commands I've written for them.

The only thing I wish it did better was printer admin and queue maintenance.
