I'm looking at phpMyAdmin to manage users and create the database in the first place. Is it the best thing to go for, or are there other packages that are not web based that might be faster or better? I come from Postgres where pgAdmin III did everything I needed. Is there a free equivalent for MySQL? I am using it on OS X 10.6.2 server. I don't mind paying (a bit) if it's worth it, but I prefer free. It's for a personal server.
