Vijayan Thanks for stopping by guys! I'm Vijayan and Techpulse is my beloved brainchild. Currently working as a PHP developer in a digital marketing start-up, I'm overly passionate about not just learning new things but also putting those into practice. I swear by a quote I once came across... 'What separates successful people from unsuccessful people is the former's ability to execute'. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions, suggestions or feedback. Hoping to see more of you here!

PHPMyAdmin is a free software tool written in PHP, intended to handle the administration of MySQL over the Web. PHPMyAdmin supports a wide range of operations on MySQL and MariaDB. Frequently used operations (managing databases, tables, columns, relations, indexes, users, permissions, etc) can be performed via the user interface, while you still have the ability to directly execute any SQL statement.


  1. Intuitive web interface
  2. Support for most MySQL features:
    • browse and drop databases, tables, views, fields and indexes
    • create, copy, drop, rename and alter databases, tables, fields, and indexes
    • maintenance server, databases, and tables, with proposals on server configuration
    • execute, edit and bookmark any SQL-statement, even batch-queries
    • manage MySQL user accounts and privileges
    • manage stored procedures and triggers
  3. Import data from CSV and SQL
  4. Export data to various formats: CSV, SQL, XML, PDF, ISO/IEC 26300 - OpenDocument Text and Spreadsheet, Word, LATEX, and others
  5. Administering multiple servers
  6. Creating graphics of your database layout in various formats
  7. Creating complex queries using Query-by-example (QBE)
  8. Searching globally in a database or a subset of it
  9. Transforming stored data into any format using a set of predefined functions, like displaying BLOB-data as image or download-link
  10. And much more…
