Just give it a shot! If something goes wrong, you will receive an error message.

P.S. tabs like SQL can be found on the right panel, you knew that?

If not, try again from the beginning. :idea:

This was really useful - thanks.

Is there a way to write macros or scripts in phpMyAdmin? I want to run a few different queries on multiple tables from time to time. Is there a way to save them in a program that can be run?

Also, how do I bring back a query in phpMyAdmin to edit it and rerun it with a slight change?

Thanks,
Brian

Are you using a different table prefix than phpbb?
The box said 'You need Windows XP or better' .... so I installed linux.

You could write them in a PHP file and have it run at a time (more or less, it could depend on when the next person accesses your website) you specify.

What SQL query should I do to undo

Code: Select all

INSERT INTO phpbb_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES ('new_post_colour', 'd82929');
I'm not that great w/ phpMyAdmin.. I tried...

Code: Select all

DELETE FROM testBB_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES ('new_post_colour', 'd82929');
It looked right, I got this error.
SQL query:

Code: Select all

DELETE FROM testBB_config(
config_name,
config_value
) VALUES (
'new_post_colour', 'd82929'
)
MySQL said: Documentation
#1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '(config_name, config_value) VALUES ('new_post_colour', 'd82929')' at line 1
Thank You.

hi

to install a mod on a phpbb 3 forum - i need to run query's to turn them into php files, so i'm using this SQL parser http://sql.phpmix.com/index.php which should do same as the phpMyAdmin

i have trouble with how to insert the SQL statements that are in the MOD file

it has statements such as this:
CREATE TABLE phpbb_anti_bot_quest_config (
config_name VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL,
config_value VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL,
PRIMARY KEY (config_name)
);
and below a line of these:
INSERT INTO phpbb_anti_bot_quest_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES ('abq_register', '0');
INSERT INTO phpbb_anti_bot_quest_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES ('abq_guest', '0');
INSERT INTO phpbb_anti_bot_quest_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES ('abq_variable_name', 'abq_0001');
INSERT INTO phpbb_anti_bot_quest_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES ('IndiQuests_CaseSensitive', '1');
INSERT INTO phpbb_anti_bot_quest_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES ('IndiQuests_ImagePHP', '0');
INSERT INTO phpbb_anti_bot_quest_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES ('Individuel_Questions', '1');
and then again some of these:
CREATE TABLE phpbb_anti_bot_quest_confirm (
confirm_id CHAR(32) NOT NULL,
session_id CHAR(32) NOT NULL,
answer VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL,
line1 VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL,
line2 VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL,
line3 VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL,
line4 VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL,
color CHAR(1) NOT NULL,
whichform CHAR(1) NOT NULL,
start_time INT(11) NOT NULL,
PRIMARY KEY (confirm_id)
);

CREATE TABLE phpbb_anti_bot_quest_regconfirm (
confirm_id CHAR(32) NOT NULL,
session_id CHAR(32) NOT NULL,
start_time INT(11) NOT NULL,
PRIMARY KEY (session_id)
);
...and then more longer ones

so, i've tried throwing the entire SQL page in at once - didn't work
then divided it in parts according to where the 'CREATE TABLE' occurs with the INTRO lines that are under it, didn't work
already checked on prefix and such, that is in order

so, how do i turn this document into a valid php file ? (or multiple php's)

line by line? so that i get a php file for every line?

what to do then with the 'CREATE TABLE' parts ?

thx - some advice would be cool

Gabriel

GabrielZM, I see no reason why the tool at phpmix wouldn't work. What you say "it didn't work", what do you mean? The tool didn't work, or the PHP file wouldn't run, etc?

There is an SQL generator tool at http://www.phpbbhacks.com/forums/db_generator.php - I have used this in the past and I have found it to work well, so you could also try that if you wanted.

guyver0, you will need to ask at the phpMyAdmin support site, they are best equipped to help you. Their site is http://www.phpmyadmin.net/home_page/support.php - they have a help forum which could be useful to you, although if you want quick help probably the IRC channel is best. You can use a web client at http://java.freenode.net so you don't have to install IRC software if you don't want to.
