Summary

This chapter covers how the web has evolved as a means of delivering applications, and why we should use PHP/MySQL to develop these applications. The chapter also gives an overview of why phpMyAdmin is recognized as a leading application to interface MySQL from the Web and a brief list of its features. It then discusses common reasons for installing phpMyAdmin, steps for downloading it from the main site, basic configuration, uploading phpMyAdmin to our web server, and also about upgrading.

Now that the basic installation has been done, the next chapter will deal with the configuration subject in depth, by exploring the authentication and security aspects.
