Phpmyadmin for newbie section added to this blog

I decided to add a PhpMyAdmin tutorial help section to this blog because it is one of the most important programs to use if you use WordPress, Drupal, phpBB, Joomla or any other MySQL or database driven website/cms on your free web hosting or  paid web host account like 1and1, Go Daddy, Host Gator, and more.

Phpmyadmin is one of the most popular web based database management software in the world which is used by 1and1. GoDaddy, Host Gator, and many more web hosts.

I teach you how to use MySQL to drop tables, empty tables, and add and edit entries to tables. Most Importantly, I’ll teach you how to optimize, repair, import/restore your SQL database and export/back up your SQL database in Phpmyadmin. I’ll also teach you how to run SQL commands with the SQL command textbox in Phpmyadmin.

Phpmyadmin can be a very powerful tool if you know how to use it. It can save you a lot of time and frustration when your CMS fails to work. But, it can also be a very dangerous tool if you do not know what you are doing, so it is best to learn as much about Phpmyadmin before using it to administrate your actual blog, forum or cms websites’ databases. Learning basic Phpmyadmin database management skills can save you a lot of time, money, and frustration since you no longer have to ask for help doing simple tasks, or pay someone to do simple tasks like backing up, importing, optimizing, and repairing your MySQL database tables which sound very complicated, but only takes a few seconds to do in PhpMyAdmin.

    Hi Johnson – This is a really good idea to do a series on PhpMyAdmin. While there are some tutorials around about how to use it, I haven’t seen any that put a spin on it for blog and CMS owners. Definitely adding your series to my toolchest, both for my own use and as a reference for my clients.

    Hi Vernessa,

    Indeed, I got the idea because there are not many good Phpmyadmin tutorials related to CMS, forums and Blog owners. I got the idea while searching online for tutorials on Phpmyadmin tutorials to help me administrate mySQL database because my mySQL database was full of old tables and entries from plug-ins I uninstalled. I found some tutorials too in-depth when I just want to do simple tasks like optimize my table, and others which did not have many screenshots, or descriptions. The two reasons I listed was the reason I made the section. I’ll be updating the series as I learn more about phpmyadmin for web hosting.

    Thanks for adding my series to your tool chest, and referencing mt series for your clients.
