"Administrador de bases de datos en formato GUI"

What do you like best?

Es tan limpio configurar y caminar como sea posible: agregue un único archivo PHP al servidor, ingrese las credenciales de la Base de datos, ¡comience!

What do you dislike?

La GUI tiene experiencia antigua y usará un mejor estilo para una navegación más simple.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Pruébalo, aunque ya no es tan guapo como PhpMyAdmin desde el primer vistazo, son las características internas las que dependen.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A veces, al hacer pequeñas modificaciones a la vez en la base de datos de un cliente, no puede iniciar sesión remotamente en el DB. Esto es mientras que Adminer es útil, no como PMA, ahora no necesita configuración y está contenido en un solo archivo PHP, y aún ofrece algo que necesita: exportaciones, importaciones, búsquedas, consultas, operaciones de bases de datos, básicamente todo.

"Small DBA Software | Adminer"

What do you like best?

The software itself is mindblowing and easy to install on the server and use. As it is only a point about uploading one file to the server, it is quite beneficial for Database Administrators to set it up.

What do you dislike?

The UX is not very good. It's not directly intuitive to the user. Else, I have no issues with this software. It's good.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recommending it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Use it for administrating various DBMS locally as well as remotely. Works well on even big databases. The simplistic file makes it very intriguing.

What Non-Native Database Management Systems solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Easy DB Panel | Adminer"

What do you like best?

The best part about this product Adminer is that it's free and open source and also only one file needs to be copied to the server for the installation of this, unlike other famous tools like PHPMyAdmin where full folder needed to be copied.

What do you dislike?

For my daily usage, this works just fine and doesn't have anything that I dislike.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Used to monitor database changes and adminisiter database via Adminer. It's quick and hassle free, and also has dynamic qualities and is lightweight so can be installed anywhere anytime like a portable PHP script.

"Adminer, the simplest DB admin panel"

What do you like best?

Technically, Adminer seems just a PHP script but it encapsulates a fully-functional database administration panel. Even if it's contained in a single page, it can be easily compared to other famous tools like PHPMyAdmin and it wins in many points: smart autocomplete when creating tables, persistent and multiple login sessions, easy export functionalities and a much more concise graphical interface. Also, the setup is the simplest thing ever: you just have to put the script in a folder and you are done!

What do you dislike?

For my tipical usage, I can't find big problems in this tool. It really does it job and it does it well. Maybe it lacks a way to customize the GUI and to organize the view for personal needs, not just the ability to change the CSS.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a minimal DBMS with interesting features, just go for Adminer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm using it to maintain a big database for a mobile application. I never felt the need of a bigger DBMS like PHPMyAdmin... Adminer has everything I need!

"Good PostgreSQL admin tool, but missing some features"

What do you like best?

I like that it's a self-hosted, web-based administration tool for PostgreSQL (and other databases, though I've only used it for PG). Encoding parameters in the URL means you can refresh the page. Best of all, it's in active development and hasn't been abandoned yet.

What do you dislike?

Some features that seem like they should be obvious are missing. For instance, I cannot TRUNCATE a table through the web interface, nor is there an option for CASCADEing. For these cases, I can write a manual SQL query, but seems like a simple button would suffice. I've also noticed that my search_path isn't set correctly when executing SQL queries. If I want the search_path to be set, I have to add "SET search_path TO my,search,path;" at the top of every SQL query.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Administrating local and remote PostgreSQL databases.

"Adminer DB tool to replace phpMyAdmin"

What do you like best?

In Adminer I like simplicity and clear user interface. Also great thing in Adminer that it is just a simple php-script that you could upload to your server do what you need and remove to for security reasons.

What do you dislike?

Can't say that I dislike something, but there is a way to improve Adminer. For example, Make custom query to DB and have all usuall ability to check multiple records to modify or delete. Also want the ability to move columns to get a better view of my data.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't think. Just give it a try and you will never return to your previous tool. Adminer is not an option.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

First is security. I don't need to install phpMyAdmin and pray that no one will hack it.

Second is speed brought by simplicity.

"Small (single file), faster, amazing"

What do you like best?

Small size ( it's really small!), single file. All functions, needed to me.

It's great, that i should not setup any soft on server, configure web server (apache. nginx, etc ). If you don't have any right for doing this things - adminer helps.

Simple interface - it's great.

What do you dislike?

Some times it's not easy to understand how make some actions.

Some times, i think, thats it would be great to see more colourfull or WEB2.0 interfaces.

Recommendations to others considering the product

may be some erd diagram?

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

DB Administration.

In one project i haven't got any access to db : console/open ports or phpmyadmin. And i just copy adminer on server and run it. It fix small bugs, which makes a lot of bad thinks and company lose moneys.

"Adminer - the phpMyAdmin killer"

What do you like best?

It's as easy to setup and get running as it could possibly be - upload a single PHP file to the server, enter the Database credentials, get going!

What do you dislike?

The GUI does feel outdated and could use a better styling for easier navigation.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try, while it may not be as handsome as PMA on first glance, it's the inside qualities that count.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sometimes when doing small changes directly in the database of a client, you can't log remotely into the DB. This is when Adminer comes in handy, unlike PMA it does not need a setup and is contained in one single PHP file, yet still offers anything you need - exports, imports, searches, queries, DB operations, basically everything.

"Amazing a single file database management tool"

What do you like best?

First of all, it's a single file, i like use some tool which is only one file.

Second, it has simple UI and fast response.

Third, it supports different DB type like ES,mongoDB

Last, I wrote php,python,ruby and also use mongoDB, mysql, sql lite and ES, and hope it can work on HIVE/HBase and HDFS

What do you dislike?

I want to review and check the adminer.php file to rewrite some function,

it's hard to open it with my editor(gvim) becuase it's to large.

sometimes when i click the first navigation like MYSQL, it will logout without alert.

Recommendations to others considering the product

sure, why not? it's easy to use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

just easy to upload into my lnmp server and work out some DB update

"Simple, clean and effective"

What do you like best?

A great and clean interface, with fast and direct ways to complete tasks that normally take several clicks on other software. Simple to install and update anywhere with a single php file. A must have.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it take a bit of time to switch between databases, but nothing bothering or serious. All the positive points surelly make up for this.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're a MySQL administrator, give it a try. I worked with phpMyAdmin for over 10 years. Adminer is a great tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My data folders are more organized and I can work faster with Adminer.

"Lean and Effective tool for remote management."

What do you like best?

I've been using Adminer for about 6 years and I like it a lot. It's lean, easy to install, and at the same time has all the functionality I'd expect. What I miss,, truly... a visual query designer. I

What do you dislike?

The fact that I can't grab and drop to create queries. However none of the players in the category offer this feature. Mainly a relationship graph, like Adminer does.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take it

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Remotely manage databases, tables. Benefits: easy of work, easy to install not as complicated as PHPAdmin.

"Clear and simple"

What do you like best?

I had been a long time user of PHPMyAdmin and was hoping for something better, more secure and with more support for other DBs. Adminer is it. Clear UI, works fast, nicely updated and good selection of DBs. I've used it for over a year without problem against MySQL and Postgres.

What do you dislike?

The table list view always computes stats which can take a while for big table lists, or tables with big data.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Quickly viewing raw data across systems. Quickly editing data. Basic authorization maintenance.

"Amzing tool to analyze and manage databases"

What do you like best?

It's very very fast, highly customizable (plugins are easy to wrote) and it supports multiple database (I was interested in mysql, postgres & elasticsearch)

What do you dislike?

function in default values are not handled well with postgres

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed a better tool than phpmyadmin. And as it supports other database it was easier on the users to get them using postgres and elasticsearch
