The phpMyAdmin project was “born” on the 9th of September, 1998, when Tobias Ratschiller released version 0.9.0. The project has grown to be one of the primary tools for administering MySQL and MySQL-like databases, with over 200,000 direct downloads per month (and countless more users who use a prepackaged installation or use a package manager for installation).
The phpMyAdmin project has grown to include code from 669 contributors and the development team has grown from one to nine active members, several Google Summer of Code students, and countless others who contribute code fixes, bug reports, and translations. The interface is currently being translated into 72 languages by the community. By lines of code, the project has grown from 13,496 to 508,761 lines1.
