http://serverfault.com – (This question is related to but different from Would you install phpmyadmin on a production web server?) I want to use PhpMyAdmin to access my production database. I'd rather not have it installed on the production server. Would it be reasonable/safe to run it on a different server, but have it access my production database over the Internet? (HowTos)
