phpMyAdmin vs Webmin: What are the differences?
Developers describe phpMyAdmin as "A free software, for MySQL and MariaDB". As a portable web application written primarily in PHP, it has become one of the most popular MySQL administration tools, especially for web hosting services. On the other hand, Webmin is detailed as "*A web-based system configuration tool *". It is a web-based interface for system administration for Unix. Using any modern web browser, you can setup user accounts, Apache, DNS, file sharing and much more. It removes the need to manually edit Unix configuration files.
phpMyAdmin can be classified as a tool in the "Database Tools" category, while Webmin is grouped under "Server Configuration and Automation".
Webmin is an open source tool with 1.04K GitHub stars and 307 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Webmin's open source repository on GitHub.
We were looking a tool that would allow us to do MySQL and PostgreSQL development/administration from a single tool. We decided on Navicat Premium because it can connect to MySQL, MariaDB, MongoDB, SQL Server, Oracle, PostgreSQL, and SQLite databases - and simultaneously. It's also compatible with Amazon RDS and Microsoft Azure, which we also use.
Moreover, we previously experienced the occasional freezing and crashing in MySQL Workbench. It also suffered from a poor design, with certain features being a bit difficult to find. Meanwhile, phpMyAdmin lacked schema visualization tools and seemed better suited to lightweight day to day transactions than some of the big jobs that we needed to do.
