phpmyadmin equivalent in ruby

Why I asking this is to avoid php installation on server. Is there any
phpmyadmin equivalent in ruby and also can be available as a linux
package?

Thanks in advance
Tom

Why do you need an equivalent, why not just use phpmyadmin?

Colin

you can use mysql query browser which is gui based package equivalent
to phpmyadmin.. I am using and I found the best gui tools for mysql
query browsing.......u will found it in your synaptic package manager
or ubuntu software center from your application menu.

Or Sequel Pro through an SSH tunnel (which is part of the connection dialog) if you’re on the Mac: http://www.sequelpro.com/

"to avoid php installation on server"

Personally - I don't think PHP on the server is any issue, but
PHPMyAdmin is a dreadful app to put on a live box (no problems with
development machines). It's got lots of vulnerabilities, and the
script-kiddies all ping away looking for its standard installation
locations.
If you *have* to use it, at least put it somewhere obscure *and* use
some extra layer of protection (through htpasswd or similar).

Depending on your local platform, there are lots of stand-alone MySQL
admin tools which will all connect to the server (assuming your
firewall, and DB permissions allow) which are a better bet for DB
management IMHO.

If you're just after data management (rather than DB management -
shouldn't that be done by migrations.... :wink: there are lots of ruby
plug-in "admin interfaces" which give CRUD functionality:

Thanks for you all. Hi Michael Pavling you specified

    Could you please explain it a bit more?

Tom

Explain more about what? When (if) you install phpMyAdmin, install it
into a folder called something other than "/phpmyadmin"; which will
give you some security through obscurity (the worst kind of security,
but better than none). Then, use your favourite search engine to find
out about securing directories with htpasswd:
http://www.google.co.uk/search?sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=htpasswd
If you're hosting on another OS, then I'm sure there'll be some
equivalent method for securing directories with passwords.

Other than that, this thread is not really anything about Rails, so is
a little off topic now.
