Wikipedia has an article on:

phpMyAdmin is an open source tool written in PHP intended to handle the administration of MySQL over the Internet. Currently it can create and drop databases, create/drop/alter tables, delete/edit/add fields, execute any SQL statement, manage users and permissions, and manage keys on fields.


Install phpMyAdmin by executing:

emerge -av phpmyadmin

You'll need to grant some rights for it to let it do its magic.

mysql -u root -p < /usr/share/webapps/phpmyadmin/<VERSION>/sqlscripts/mysql/<VERSION>_create.sql
