I usually program in Coldfusion.  With CF, I can turn on debugging and it will show me all the running queries on the page and their execution time.  This is great for finding slow queries.  Is there a way to show the queries on a page in PHP so that I can look to fine tune them? I am Using PHP 5.4 and mySQL 5.6

Thank you

You would have to add test code to your page that would give you that info.

Here's my teaching example showing how to add a timer that can time part of a script.  You could wrap your SQL query in a call to the timer as shown here (this demonstration script just reads the Google home page, but I'm sure you can follow the concept).

There is also some help from MySQL:
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/slow-query-log.html

<?php // demo/class_Stopwatch.php
error_reporting(E_ALL);

// START THE TIMER
$t = new StopWatch;
$t->start();

// DO SOME ACTIVITY THAT YOU WANT TO TIME
$x = file_get_contents('https://google.com/');

// GET A READOUT FROM THE TIMER
echo $t->readout();

// RESET THE TIMER
$t->reset();


// A SCRIPT TIMER FOR ALL OR PART OF A SCRIPT PHP 5+
// MAN PAGE http://php.net/manual/en/function.microtime.php
class StopWatch
{
    protected $a; // START TIME
    protected $s; // STATUS - IF RUNNING
    protected $z; // STOP TIME

    public function __construct()
    {
        $this->a = array();
        $this->s = array();
        $this->z = array();
    }

    // A METHOD TO PROVIDE A FINAL READOUT, IF NEEDED
    public function __destruct()
    {
        $ret = $this->readout();
        if (!$ret) return FALSE;
        echo
          __CLASS__
        . '::'
        . __FUNCTION__
        . '() '
        ;
        echo "<b>$ret</b>";
        echo PHP_EOL;
    }

    // A METHOD TO REMOVE A TIMER
    public function reset($name='TIMER')
    {
        // RESET ALL TIMERS
        if ($name == 'TIMER')
        {
            $this->__construct();
        }
        else
        {
            unset($this->a[$name]);
            unset($this->s[$name]);
            unset($this->z[$name]);
        }
    }

    // A METHOD TO CAPTURE THE START TIME
    public function start($name='TIMER')
    {
        $this->a[$name] = microtime(TRUE);
        $this->z[$name] = $this->a[$name];
        $this->s[$name] = 'RUNNING';
    }

    // A METHOD TO CAPTURE THE END TIME
    public function stop($name='TIMER')
    {
        $ret = NULL;

        // STOP ALL THE TIMERS
        if ($name == 'TIMER')
        {
            foreach ($this->a as $name => $start_time)
            {
                // IF THIS TIMER IS STILL RUNNING, STOP IT
                if ($this->s[$name])
                {
                    $this->s[$name] = FALSE;
                    $this->z[$name] = microtime(TRUE);

            }
        }

        // RETURN AN ERROR MESSAGE, IF ANY
        return $ret;
