Mimetypes-text-x-sql-iconAlways handy with a web based database tool. Here is how to install and access PhpPgAdmin on a Debian variant.

First to install the package.

And uncomment the line allow from all

Now you need to set a password for the root user. PostgreeSQL call the root user for postgres.

sudo -u postgres psql (or su postgres, then start psql)

Inside the postgree database type this to set a password
Enter the password twice as usual
