Yeah, but if you are doing all this on a hosted web server, you don't have
control of this (or the httpd.conf) setting. That's another nice thing about
using phpMyAdmin - it works even on a foreign, hosted, web server. You don't
need commandline access. That, plus a "GUI", makes it the method of choice
for me.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of
arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather
to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body
thoroughly used up, worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"
