Running SQL queries on a database with phpMyAdmin

This tutorial assumes you've already logged in to phpMyAdmin

Now let's learn how to run SQL queries on a database

Click the database table you wish to run a SQL query on


As demonstrated in another tutorial, you can delete (or drop) a field from a table by selecting it here then clicking the drop icon here


In this tutorial however, let's demonstrate how to delete this address field using pure SQL commands

Click the SQL button here


Then type the SQL command to delete the address field from the details table. Click Go when finished


That's it! the SQL command has been executed. Let's go take a look

The address field is no longer in our details table


You can also click the SQL button directly from the table view (instead of from the database view which is what we did)…..

….. doing so presents a SQL query window that is partially filled in

This is the end of the tutorial. You now know how to run SQL queries on a database using phpMyAdmin
