What level of access do you have to the database.  Command line, only through something like php etc?  The answer will depend on what access you have

I think you need like this simple mysql management tool (not like phpMyAdmin) .. download this ,  configure and upload in your shared hosting,
http://sqlbuddy.com/

so you can easily access Db tables, change, alter all are possible.

If you have using shared hosting, it might be limited to create db. just ask them for more details.

also, you can get phpMyAdmin access on browser itself.

Try this script. this may help you

DECLARE @Sql NVARCHAR(500) DECLARE @Cursor CURSOR

SET @Cursor = CURSOR FAST_FORWARD FOR

SELECT DISTINCT sql = 'ALTER TABLE [' + tc2.TABLE_NAME + '] DROP [' + rc1.CONSTRAINT_NAME + ']'

FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.REFERENTIAL_CONSTRAINTS rc1

LEFT JOIN INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLE_CONSTRAINTS tc2 ON tc2.CONSTRAINT_NAME =rc1.CONSTRAINT_NAME

OPEN @Cursor FETCH NEXT FROM @Cursor INTO @Sql

WHILE (@@FETCH_STATUS = 0)

BEGIN

Exec SP_EXECUTESQL @Sql

FETCH NEXT FROM @Cursor INTO @Sql

END

CLOSE @Cursor DEALLOCATE @Cursor
