phpMyAdmin and Relation Features

software development


Has anyone made relational tables and/or foreign keys through phpMyAdmin? I know this can be done by creating a pma database and table, and adding the string to my config file. However, I can’t access my PHP config file as it’s part of Dreamhost’s apache install. Any suggestions that don’t involve compiling php in my own space? I’ve got two very simple tables and I want to establish a foreign key for one to the primary key of the other. Thanks!


thanks for the response, bob. i’ve looked at those links before, i suppose i just wanted an easy way to create the foreign key, preferably through the phpMyAdmin interface. but here’s to bad practice, i’ll go without the fk.
