SQLyog Community Edition is free, but they offer also a professional version.
Allows to create multiple connections and save profiles; you can test if connection works before saving credentials and other login details. You can connect directly to MySQL host (i tested with XAMPP on local computer) or use HTTP, SSH, SSL.
Once you are connected to a database, you can manage more easily and quickly database structure, import CSV files, make backups as MySql dump or save as file (CSV, HTML, SQL ..), manage indexes, create triggers, run queries and more.
IF you don't have a tool like phpMyAdmin on your server or simply do you want a clean and easy to use GUI, this software is a great alternative.
- easy to use
- export and import
