Yet another couple of instructions: In order to see the structure of a table, you only need to click on the one that is marked in the left bar and you will see all its fields and modification options appear in the central part (Figure 3-12).

The DROP command eliminates all the contents of the DB, the table or the single field, use it with caution.

To learn more about the possibilities that phpMyAdmin offers you in administering your databases, see Doing More With phpMyAdmin (Part 1) and Doing More With phpMyAdmin (Part 2). The first part explains how to obtain the software, install and configure it for secure access, and use it for tasks such as managing multiple servers, manipulating user privileges, viewing reports on server activity, and exporting MySQL records into different formats. The second part explains the more advanced aspects of the application, including using it for transformations, maintaining a history of all the SQL queries executed in the phpMyAdmin session, defining relations between tables to create JOINs automatically, creating E-R diagrams in PDF format, and bookmarking important queries for future reference.
