I’ve recently moved my web site development from Windows/ASP to Linux/PHP/MySQL. I’m a child of the GUI generation so I went looking for a cheap GUI for MySQL. I found better than cheap – I found free.
DBMananger allows you to manage MySQL, PostgreSQL, Interbase/Firebird, SQLite, Xbase, MSAccess, MSSQL Server, Sybase and Oracle. I’ve used it once to get the database for www.criticalconf.com up and running and so far it’s doing all I asked for. It uses your standard SQL manager layout so there’s little, if any, learning curve and as a newcomer to MySQL that’s a bonus for me.
I’m about to launch in to a much more ambitious project so I’ll be able to give a fuller review once that’s done.
Gotta love LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySql, PHP) development!
ooh. DBManager is cross-platform? I didn’t quite grasp that when you showed me yesterday. I’ll definitely check it out.
