Frequently asked questions

What are the requirements?

SelectFrom runs on a PHP backend with a Vuex frontend.

Latest version browser (no Internet Explorer)
PHP 7.2 or higher, with PDO MySQL and Sodium extensions
MySQL 5.7 or higher

Is this an alternative for PhpMyAdmin?

That depends. SelectFrom is lightweight and currently only supports the basics of database management. If you use many of the advanced functions of tools like PhpMyAdmin, this might not (yet) be for you. Check out the demo to see if you like it.

What does SelectFrom not support?

Currently the following features are not supported:

  • Procedures
  • Triggers
  • Import/export of files other than .sql
  • Management of users and user rights

How do I install this?

Simple. You extract the contents of the zip file into your local www root and navigate to the folder through your browser.

How secure is SelectFrom, can i use it on a online host?

We spent alot of effort on security. However still, you should never make the app publicly accessible. Always take extra security measures:

  • Limit access only to whitelisted IP addresses
  • Limit access with a username/password via htaccess
  • Make sure it is only reachable through HTTPS

SelectFrom is meant for local development. It assumes you use it with the root user or a user with all rights.

Can I connect to a remote host?

Currently not.
