Database management tools provide a web interface for the administration of databases. The tools also allow running SQL queries from this user interface.

Plesk is shipped with the following database management tools:

  • phpMyAdmin is used for MySQL databases.
  • phpPgAdmin is used for PostgreSQL databases.
  • myLittleAdmin is used for Microsoft SQL Server.

Note that you need to install these tools first in Tools & Settings > Updates and Upgrades Add/Remove Components.

Enabling direct access to phpMyAdmin

You can enable direct access to phpMyAdmin and make it accessible by browsing the following URL:


To do so, add the following lines to the file:

[databaseManagement] features.phpMyAdmin.loginForm.enabled = on

To open a database management tool for the selected database server:

  1. Go to Tools & Settings Database Servers.
  2. Click the icon corresponding to the database server you need to manage. One of the supported database management tools (depending on the database engine) will open in a separate browser window.
