RUIDB was developed between 2004 and 2008. Development by the original author has been stopped. Of course, you can continue to use and improve it. RUIDB is a simple tool for working with MySQL using a Web browser. It was made to enable users with little knowledge of MySQL to add/edit/delete/view table rows. It is also a nice tool for admins or Web site authors. It was not made to and will never be able to alter the layout of tables or create tables. It was made for users to work in tables that already exist. If you want a complete tool for administration of MySQL, the author recommends using PHPMyAdmin. RUIDB was created because the author thinks that PHPMyAdmin is too complex, too difficult, and too dangerous for "normal" users who have little or no knowledge of SQL.
