phpMyAdmin is an open source tool written in PHP intended to handle the administration of MySQL over the World Wide Web.

This tool can perform various tasks such as creating, modifying or deleting databases, tables, fields or rows; executing SQL statements; or managing users and permissions.

phpMyAdmin can manage a whole MySQL server as well as a single database. To achieve the latter you need a properly set up MySQL user who can read/write only the desired database.
