MySQL made Easy for Engineers / Technologists

Administion of MySQL
MySQL for Engineers / Technologists

MySQL is a freely available open source Relational Database Management System (RDBMS) that uses Structured Query Language (SQL). SQL is the most popular language for adding, accessing and managing content in a database. It is most noted for its quick processing, proven reliability, ease and flexibility of use.

MySQL is an open-source relational database management system. Its name is a combination of "My", the name of co-founder Michael Widenius's daughter, and "SQL", the abbreviation for Structured Query Language.

Administion of MySQL
Here are different options you have available for administering your MySQL service after it is successfully installed.

MySQL - Command Line
If you are an old programmer that has no need for a MySQL GUI (graphical user interface) then you can simply use any command line interface to execute MySQL queries.

If you installed MySQL on Microsoft Windows operating system you can reach the command line by going to the Start Menu and choose "Run...". Type the keyword "cmd" into the text field and press Enter to launch Window's command line interface.

MySQL - GUI
With so many free MySQL administration tools available, many developers favor these free Graphical User Interfaces over the command line. The popular options include:

  • MySQL Administrator - A powerful tool developed by the folks at MySQL.com


  • SQLyog - My favourite. You can download free for unlimited basic use. For advance use like backups, you need to upgrade.

  • Navicat - A purchasable MySQL admin tools for Windows, Mac and Linux. You can download and use free for 30 days only.
