When installing LAMP server on seedboxes, there is currently no documentations on the way to use a MySQL database.
During the install, a database named “dbtest” is created but nobody knows so it is not useful.

To access the MySQL admin, you have to install either phpMyAdmin which is big and more useful if you manage your own server or a little script named adminer that you can find at this url, or directly download adminer-4.6.2-mysql. This script is very easy to use, just create a directory under your public_html directory, copy the file

Here are the configuration details needed:


Server: localhost
Username: root
Password: the one you choose

and then you can create a new database, and specific user for the database (it is better than using the root user).
