phpmyadmin access problem and change server from URL

I was having issues with one of the phpmyadmin setups. The first server defined in the config file was not accessible and the theme that I was using was not allowing me to change the server from the first page. This resulted in a state where I was not able to access phpmyadmin in any way. I could not connect to any of the servers. And thus had to hack my way in to phpmyadmin to find out how to connect to other servers from URL. And here is my finding:


In the above, replace server with your server address/IP. and also the number in the end with the server index in you phpmyadmin config file.

gqlplus – sqlplus with readline (tab completion)

Tab completion is something which is missing in the sqlplus and if you have lot of tables with long names or lot of columns then it is sufficiently  difficult to type them 🙂

Here is a solution for this problem. Download and install gqlplus. gqlplus is a replcement for sqlplus which supports completion for commands/tablenames and column names. Quite useful.
