Tomorrow will be cancelled due to lack of interest


Sometimes developer needs an access to Magento database, but lacks command line option. Or mad MySQL CLI skills. Sometimes installing phpMyAdmin is too much hassle to fix a record or two. And because of associated inconvenience, sometimes people “forget” to remove it once installed, leaving a window of opportunity to anyone smart enough to find it and exploit it. Enter Multon_PMA: easy to install, easy to remove; phpMyAdmin as an Extension.

Features (0.1.6; 20141018):

  • Includes phpMyAdmin 4.2.10, unchanged;
  • Single Sign-On, no need for separate login;
  • Gives developer all the database privileges Magento has;
  • Packaged for convenient installation and removal;

There might be a number of potential problems, for example how sessions are handled. Also, I haven’t had chance to try it out with sockets and alternative ports. Please test and report; I’ll try to fix bugs as time permits. Or even better, submit the fix yourself to GitHub!


How to install?
  1. Go to System > Magento Connect > Magento Connect Manager;
  2. Log in;
  3. Under Direct package file upload choose Browse / Choose file and find downloaded .tgz;
  4. Click Upload;
  5. Profit!

Please note that you have to uninstall all the previous versions first.
