MySQL Administrator is a powerful GUI for managing MySQL servers. It can be used to configure databases and tables, manage users, run backups, view logs, and even monitor server health. MySQL has needed this badly, and the alpha of this tool can now be downloaded from http://www.mysql.com/downloads/administrator.html. Details are at http://www.mysql.com/products/administrator/index.html (look at the screenshots on that page). If you use MySQL then you’ll definitely want to grab a copy.
