Can anyone recommend a MySQL frontend for CentOS?

Post by priestapostate » 2019/12/28 14:27:16

I am studying how to use MySQL on my CentOS7 system - while I am practicing commands from the terminal, can anyone recommend a good frontend to use with it?
I tried installing MySQL Workbench for Redhat (https://dev.mysql.com/downloads/workbench/) - but I'm receiving a message stating that it is not designed for CentOS, and I'm not sure if my issues with getting it to work stem from that incompatibility.

I use phpMyAdmin with my mariadb ('mysql'). You install on the server then access via it's web page.
Remember - importing/building packages will likely "byte you in the butt" come update time, long after you'd forgotten you did that! Use repos whenever possible.

You can just ignore the message it produces, they make it for RHEL and OEL and don't support CentOS but it should still work. I just downloaded mysql-workbench-community-8.0.18-1.el7.x86_64, installed it, fired it up and apart from two ominous sounding "unsupported" popup boxes, it seems to work just fine.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
