Mysql front-end for linux


Does anyone know of a good mysql front-end application for linux? (Something free, preferably open-source GPL).

Windows has mysql yog which is nice, but I need something for linux.

I just found MySQL Navigator. Might be a worthwhile solution. I haven't tried it yet though because I am still tweaking my system after its recent upgrade.

I've just installed redhat 9 and it includes MySQL. I tried MySQl Control Center but it is very flaky. The authors are very upfront about this still being in-development software, which is fair enough. It looks like a really useful application once they get it stable.

My next port of call was MySQL Navigator which is fine. It is less flashy and a little less inuitive than MySQLCC but it works.

At work I have to use Windows and I use a MySQL front-end called Navicat, which is brilliant but they don't seem to have a linux version (although they do have a MacOSx version).

I use webmin to create and administrate my MySQL Databases and then I give users phpMyAdmin to connect and work with there databases on the server, both of these are great.

www.webmin.com
www.phpmyadmin.net

MySQL Control Center isn't the easiest tool in the world to use, because it can be confusing to those not terribly familiar with database applications, but believe this...It's a million times more intuitive that PL/SQL Developer (for Oracle)

phpMyAdmin is a very nice tool, although using it remotely over an unsecured connection (ie, no SSL support) is just begging for trouble. if you have SSL, by all means use this front end. If not...well...work locally

phpMyAdmin is THE best, especially the newer versions. If you have SSL and want complete control, this is for you. You can even enter your own query's in text mode without even switching between your browser and your Xterms.

Also, phpMyAdmin will optionally show all PHP code used to manipulate DB's and the data in each table. Great for newbies, even better for copy-and-pasters!

can you share the location of "the best" location of phpMyAdmin?
What is better? the *.tar.gz or the *rpm?
Thanks again

i always go source for web-based stuff, i trust it MUCH more. RPMs can screw around, and if there are sensitive files in your htdocs, well, I just stick to the safe side. Anyways, it's an incredibly easy install. I've even written a tutorial for a great up-start site.
