phpmyadmin
Hi Guys,

I created a database in phpmyadmin and gave 2 other people access to the database.I am looking for a 3rd party software I can use to connect to this database? so the front end is more user friendly for the other 2 people, one has windows and one person has a Mac.
(like maybe LibreOffice or something like that)
Thanks for any help
Michael

RE: phpmyadmin
I actually find phpMyAdmin to be pretty user friendly. It's a database, and databases are somewhat complex. Once you get the hang of the interface, you can stick to a couple of steps to do what you want.

What is it that your users want to do with the database?

RE: phpmyadmin
Giving your users direct access to the SQL database for that is probably a bad idea. Tools like phpMyAdmin and MySQL Workbench are really built first and foremost as system-administrator tools, not as data entry systems.

You'll do much better to put together a web interface (using something like PHP, Ruby on Rails, or Django) to allow these users to add information to the database.
