php MyAdmin

Unfortunately I haven't had time to write more posts. Recently I installed phpMyAdmin and you can click this link to see how to install.

If you don't want use phpMyAdmin, you can use MySQL Workbench. With this link you can use to download, install and use it. Sorry, I don't have video to show how to install MySQL Workbench but I think that is not really difficult to install.

Today I was working in my project in Linux Ubuntu. I wanted extract folder to specific location and I could not because there was unable to extract.
I clicked in mouse's right button and then selected option 'Extract here' and show up the error message.

To extract name_folder.rar, follow the next steps:
  1. Type 'sudo apt-get install unrar' in Terminal
  2. Go to folder that you want extract and with mouse's right button select option 'Extract here'
  3. Congratulations, you can extract with success!
