Thanks for the advice.
I spent some time tweaking Webmin and it turns out that buried deep in the configuration files it was reading the wrong database. I'll take a look at phpmyadmin, but for now Webmin is great.
edit: I just looked at phpmyadmin, and it only manages MySQL. Webmin does that and so much more, including managing my Apache 1.3 server, sendmail, SSHD, LILO, and general system config. That list isn't all-inclusive, either.
Besides, I'm only using the database for my PHPbb bulletin board, so I can use the built-in management tool. Finally, I only expect to make sure that the server is running properly and if necessary stop, start, or restart it from Webmin. Although, looking at how advanced phpmyadmin is, if someday I do need to manage a MySQL database using an "external" application, I will definitely download it and use it.
