A WordPress plugin/Dashboard Widget that allows you to connect to any database and edit the contents.
To install, download the .zip file, extract the contents and place the edit-any-table folder in your plugin directory (typically \your-site\wp-content\plugins)
Once installed go to the Dashboard->Plugins page of your WordPress site and activate the plugin.
Now go to the Dashboard->Settings->Edit Any Table page and enter the required details.
First you will need to enter the host (often localhost), the name of the database you wish to connect to and a valid user name and password.
Under Admin Settings you can choose to allow Administrators only to have access to the widget or Editors as well. Note: If neither of these boxes are ticked the widget will not display in your WordPress Dashboard.
Display Settings allows you to select the maximum number of columns to display for returned searches. Edit Any Table displays best in a single column dashboard configuration and I find five columns is a comfortable fit but adjust to suit.
Also here you can set a friendly name for the database you are connecting to (less confusing for your users)
