    Hi,

    Can anybody tell me if there's a GUI available for MySQL server, version 6.0.6, and if so, which one/s they'd recommend. I've been working with the command-line to date, but would also like a nice graphical way of viewing my work!

    Thanks,

    - Alex

    The classic way is with phpMyAdmin. I have used that - but prefer to use the command line because in complicated things like databases there are limits to what can be shown on a general purpose GUI.

    I tend to use SQLSquirrel, Eclipse or VisualStudio, loads of them about.

    Thanks for that Harry. I have used phpMyAdmin before in the past, but always thought that it was a web based application? Is there a stand-alone version also?

    Cool. I'll look into each of them. Like the name SQLSquirrel! :D

    I am using SQLsquirrel for access to Oracle at the moment.

    It seems OK - but because I was brought up on command line apps I feel that it isn't quite right!

    Oracle people tend to prefer TOAD or SQLDeveloper or as mentioned the command line.
