Free database desktop application




Posted by etogre, 04-12-2008, 12:08 AM
I'm looking for a desktop application for windows that will allow me access a local MySQL database and work with it like I would in PHPMyAdmin. I know such things exist but I'm having trouble finding one with Google. So if anyone can recommend a good free one, that would be cool. Also if there was support for other database types that would be superb, but not required. Thanks

I'll second Toad (if you're running Windows on your client machine that is); it's extremely powerful and full featured for a free app. I tend to use DBVisualizer (a paid app) more because of it's better cross-database platform support (plus it also runs on non-Windows machines being a Java app), but if you're just using a single database platform and your client machine is Windows, Toad would my choice.

Thanks, I think I will give Toad a test run.
