The hosting that supports my client's website disabled phpmyadmin. I needed to export and import tables and MySQL Workbench didn't have an import function. So I found OSE's database manager and it does exactly what it says it does. It allows me to use phpmyadmin right in Joomla! Fantastic. Also the tech support is phenomenal.

I created a site for a client on my server only to find they had gone and taken space on another server and wanted to use that. Not really wanting to recreate an entire stationery shop the simplest solution was to import the various category and product tables from the Database on my server. Not having full access to phpAdmin on the new server this is the only app that I could find that gave full access to phpAdmin and allowed me to do exactly what I wanted.

A small hiccup over using Joomla 2.5 was corrected within 30 minutes via a support ticket although I had bought the "No support version". Awesome response time, guys

Well worth the money at £39 for the full support version or £29 for the no support version. This app is definitely now in my arsenal for website development.

Until the Joomla 2.5 fix is released here it is
In file:


find these codes

if(!isset($user->groups['Super Users'])) {

$access= false;


changed it to:



$access= false;


This is a user group judge problem specifically for Joomla! 2.5.

I quickly tested this because I had a database to recover.

Very nice wrap-up of the original widely known phpMyAdmin panel.

Perfect tool to manage your DB without having to go away from your joomla site. If you know your way around the original, then you know this one, it's exactly the same!

Perfect webdeveloppers tool!
It allowed me to make a backup of the entire database, while my original phpMyAdmin was down.
A must-have in case of such emergencies.

Install & Go. Works perfect for me.

More pro : You only get access to the database that supports your particular Joomlasite.

No info on support, since I didn't need any.

It's free!
