I'm curious of moving my php development to it's native environment - Linux...
XAMPP (package of apache/php/mysql etc) is succesfully installed and the only thing that's stopping me is that the Linux version of MySql Administrator s.. , is not very good. (strange 'cause windows version is).

Are thare any good free (of charge) alternatives around? They must support stored procedures and views.

Heard positive comments regarding SQLyog

http://www.webyog.com/en/

Alternatively you pay for what you get so free stuff can be limited, you could try Navicat which has received rave reviews from friends and collegaues working with PHP and MySQL

Thanks, I'll try out SQLyog.

$129 to replace the defective Linux-MA!? Think I'll rather stick to win :-)

Hmm i see no Linux version for SQLyog-community, only source. The enterprise version is quite expensive...

yeah navicat is available for none commercial use... so as long as its for personal use and you aren't profitting commercially you are fine.

When you're in a situation to profit commercially you won't mind giving them some cash to upgrade.
Non Commercial - LINUX download

As they suggest though, install the 30 day demo to see the difference between the Lite and the Pro version, you may only need lite - and that's free

but if you leave MySql Administrator you could use that to backup?

Using for the improved GUI in Navicat for everything else??? They are both interfaces to the same system

Actually backup/restore is one of the things that sucks with the Linux version of MySql Administrator. It did not behave like the windows version with the same settings. The win version have no proplems restoring to Linux server, so it's not an OS issue.

Maybe you could use Navicat Lite and use command line for backup restore...

Ok, I'll take the silence for an answer... There are no good free MySQL admin tools for linux. Navicat Lite is the best shot in conjunction w/ command line.
