What is phpMyAdmin?

phpMyAdmin is a free software tool written in PHP, intended to handle the administration of MySQL over the Web. phpMyAdmin supports a wide range of operations on MySQL and MariaDB. Frequently used operations (managing databases, tables, columns, relations, indexes, users, permissions, etc) can be performed via the user interface, while you still have the ability to directly execute any SQL statement.

Since phpMyAdmin is a web based software written in PHP this means it falls under the servers (it’s running on) PHP limits. For this reason recommend the use of a database administration tool like MySQL WorkBench for larger database administration task. You can, however, raise the PHP limits on the server to allow for larger execution times, upload size restrictions, etc. to help your database administrating.
