Well, I love using adminer. It a small footprint web application that able to handle mysql / mariadb just like phpmyadmin. I prefer using adminer during local development. You can clone / download a copies from repository and put on you server but I have my own way.
$ cd /var/www/html $ git clone https://github.com/vrana/adminer.git $ mv adminer adminer_git $ ln -s /var/www/html/adminer_git/adminer/ /var/www/html/adminer
I rename the local git repoitory and created symlink so it will be much easier to access as
localhost/adminer instead of
localhost/adminer/adminer. Then if I need to update, just navigate to git folder and pull the update from it repositoy. I love to keep it simple and short!
