Ever needed to check some data in one of your WordPress database tables, but don’t have PHPMyAdmin available? Now you can easily query your data and export it in HTML, XML, CSV, SQL (insert statements) and JSON formats with a simple plugin.
There are other options, for example you can write your own ‘where’ and ‘order by’ clauses, and pagination is built-in. You can also see the complete query run against your database. And you can even save queries with custom names, so if there are queries you use a lot they are only a click away.
/wp-content/plugins/directory, or install from the Plugin browser
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- Can I delete my data?
Yes, it is possible to delete or modify data using the custom query, ‘Where’ and ‘Order by’ boxes. Be careful.
- Who can export the data?
Only people with export permisions – the people who can run your WordPress export file.
Works great, if a little crudely for some. Being able to get some help building simpler table joins would be really nice.
Thanks, awesome plugin!)
This plugin is perfect for what I needed. I was able to see the database table containing my user login information (subscribers) and look up a suspicious IP address by exporting the table as a CSV and looking at it in a spreadsheet. Great!
I just made a donation to the developer and I am very happy with what this plugin allowed me to do. Thank you again.
I’ll leave this at five stars for now. I PLAN to install this, but haven’t yet. For now, I’ll justify the review on the basis of documentation and a useful change log. Ahem.
Quickly query the database, unused to hosting-> phpmyadmin, now a long time
Plugin works very nice and have lots of options. Great working with 4.5.3.
