How can I view a MySQL database?

MySQL databases need external programs to view the data.  MySQL has a built in command line text interface, but requires shell access to your hosting account.

The easiest way to view the data in a MySQL database is to use phpMyAdmin.  This is a visual tool to view, add, delete, and manage your MySQL database including tables, records, and databases.

phpMyAdmin comes pre-installed in the cPanel.  It can be accessed by clicking on the phpMyAdmin icon under the Databases group.  This will lauch the phpMyAdmin web interface.

More information on phpMyAdmin can be found by following this link to the phpMyAdmin homepage.  More information on managing MySQL databases can be found by following this link to the MySQL home page.
