Using Phpmyadmin via wordpress dashboard

I am always looking for ways to add more features to my wordpress installation through plug-ins. This time, I found this plug-in that lets you access your database using phpmyadmin in your wordpress dashboard.

Before I found this, I would be going to the cpanel just to see the database. However, with this plug-in, I don’t need to do that. Me and you can just do the following:

  1. Download the wordpress phpmyadmin plug-in
  2. Activate the plug-in
  3. Go to Manage->phpMyAdmin
  4. Enjoy! ^_^

To those who want to see the screenshot, just click on this post’s permalink.

My wordpress dashboard looks different than the usual right? It’s also because of a plug-in. hehe ^_^

I would like to give special mention to the website, Shrink Pictures – Resize Images Online for the free service on resizing my images. ^_^

  1. but what about my other databases? I think I’ll stick to phpmyadmin :p

    anyway.. the TA group blog will be up tommorow. ^_^

    • You can also access the other databases. It’s still the same phpmyadmin just that its now a plug-in. ^_^

  2. It’s a cool plugin that makes life easier and accessing Phpmyadmin more convenient.

    What about security issues? What if a malicious user gets into your WP admin panel? Personally, I’d rather keep it separate from my WP account and that it needs a different username/password before it can be accessed. 🙂

    • Hmm I guess if your wp account get compromised, sad to say your database gets affected too… Now that I think about it, it’s quite risky to use this. haha

  3. there are good things and drawbacks. I suppose having a strong password is your guard against it. By the way, it woould be nice if you could post the inks to the most common plug ins used for wordpress. That’ll be brilliant.

  4. Wow great information, this will really save time
