    Hey. I currently use MySQL. And always ran queries and made changes through the server's installed phpmyadmin. I wanted to be able to do it locally, with more control and options, so I downloaded the mysql workbench. I haven't touched it much yet....

    I am planning on getting to know the ins and outs of postgresql.
    SEMrush
    I want toknow, what software can I use on my computer (windows AND Linux) to connect to multiple databases(mysql, postgresql, and sqlite) on different servers.

    I did a quick search and found HeidiSQL. Is that what people are using? I would prefer something that's cross platform.

    I remember watching a video and this dude had something that was exactly what I am looking for, but I never made a note of the name.

    Navicat is well worth the cost if you manage a lot of servers or multiple types of databases. I can tell you first hand that it has paid for itself many times over in the 8 or so years I've been using it.

    Yea. After doing a little more research, it seems to be very popular and loved. Just that $799(commercial) price tag is a killer.

    Wow. I didn't realize the price went up that much. I think it was something like $150 when I purchased it. $800 is a bit crazy.

    +1 for HeidiSQL, also DBeaver if you're using Linux.

    I use sqlyog on windows for mysql and it's brilliant - uses bridge scripts too which means you can use it on shared hosting or client sites without creating a scene. I'm trying to find something for osx but nothing comes close.

    I have this on some of my computers and its great. But when I tried to put this on my new laptop, the website comes up as "SQLyog for Windows - 14 days free trial" and its now $99 per license per machine.

    The price tag is fine for development companies but not find for most individuals.

    It's about the only software I was happy to pay so much for - purely because it saves me so much time and runs my daily backups. I bought it a million years ago and kept using it after the license expired which they allow, you just can't upgrade. Why I moved from XP to 7 I bought another license and let that expire too. Then my auto backups crapped out and the only way to get it working was to re-license. I figured by now I'd had a ton of value out it so bought the 5 year license. Practically everything else I use is freeware - gimp, netbeans, filezilla.

    navicat for mysql = $129 or $199 (depending if you want the data modeling tool included)
    navicat premium = $799

    Premium supports all kind of databases, do you really need that since you said you're using mysql at the moment

    I would rather recommend you to try dbForge Studio for MySQL. It is good for development and administration tasks. Easy to use and have a lot of important functionality.
    Even pricing is affordable for its set of capabilities - 124 $ Pro edition for non commercial use. You may download it for free and see for yourself can this tool be a number one for you or not. Personally I use it for a long time and I am still a big fan of it.

    I've been using Oracle's SQL Developer for many years for Oracle databases. It also works fairly well with MySQL/MariaDB/Percona and Postgres if you install the Java drivers, which is straightforward. This can also be used to create database diagrams. (Using the built-in Data Modeller tool.)

    Works quite well, is cross-platform (it's Java) and it's free.

    The most downloaded software for database management are ms office access, file amker pro, the report viewer etc. You can use any of them.
