AJAX based GUI for MySQL?

I could not find any mention of this tool, so I thought I can share it: http://novaquantum.com

They seem to provide a tool to manage ,multiple MySQL severs using a nice Web 2.0 interface.

That looks interesting indeed, but my quick look at their website left me with security related questions. While the claim not to store any information, and list the links between the client program and their servers as “secure communications”, I saw no further detail (SSL?).

Until I was absolutely convinced that the user/pass info passed was not subject to a man-in-the-middle attack, I’d not use such a tool myself (though I fully understand YMMV).

A further quick look at the docs indicates you need ioncube loaders to run their client, and triggers support (not currently available from DreamHost).

These two things alone make it a “I’ll pass” for me.

I agree with rlparker. Additionally, it is browser based. For browser-based access we already have PHPMyAdmin which is Open Source and totally free of charge. If one wanted a remote access solution that can connect to multiple servers and databases there are plenty of clients available such as SQL Maestro for MySQL (it’s a pretty good app - check it out). Solutions such as this don’t need a man-in-the-middle server or obfuscated software installed on your server.

And if you want a nicer web interface than PHPMyAdmin, SQLBuddy (http://www.sqlbuddy.com/) is pretty cool.
