If your host doesn’t provide you with phpMyAdmin access, or if you simply want a faster lighter version of phpMyAdmin for simple DB admin tasks and running custom SQL queries, then take a look at phpMiniAdmin. Its a single script so its incredibly easy to install – simply upload it.
I would be tempted to beef up the security a little bit, maybe put it into a htaccess password protected folder or something if you can. It has password functionality built in, but this doesn’t seem to be working for me.
