Open the script in your text editor. No HTML header or footer is created, thus
you may want to include a header at the top of the script, and include a
footer at the end of the script.
Various options are configured near the top of the script, most notably the
database logon. For security reasons, you may want to copy/paste the logon
options to a separate, included file.
MySQL logon options host name, user name, password, database, and table appear
in the following format.
Example 3-1. Database connection options
$opts['hn'] = 'localhost';
$opts['un'] = 'username';
$opts['pw'] = 'password';
$opts['db'] = 'database';
$opts['tb'] = 'table';
Recommended usage is, that the first four options shown above should be moved
to a separate, included file.
It is a rather common situation to use phpMyEdit inside larger project. To
prevent phpMyEdit from creating an additional persistent database connection,
$opts['dbh'] option. In the example below,
$your_project_db_handle represents a previously allocated
MySQL database handle. When
$opts['dbh'] is specified, the
first four options appearing above are ignored.
Example 3-2. Supplying allocated connection
$opts['dbh'] = $your_project_db_handle;
