When I'm using phpMyAdmin normally, I want the table structure page to load as quickly as possible, so I set the threshold level for approximate row counts to a fairly low number. However, just sometimes I want to be able to quickly see the exact row count for a table. It would be nice if I could click on "~1,234,567" and have it go and do an exact count and replace "~1,234,567" with "1,500,000". Clicking on the sum at the bottom should go and update all the row counts on the page.

    Viduranga,
    this feature request should be part of GSoC 2014, please do not work on it. Approximate row counts are displayed (for example) in database Structure for tables using the InnoDB storage engine.

     
  • Marc,
    I hope to participate in GSoC 2014. So should I wait till google announces the mentor organizations list ?

    Viduranga,
    this feature will be assigned to a participating student in GSoC 2014. If you want to continue showing us your skills, please pick another feature (or bug).

     
  • Okay. So can you point me to some features or bugs that are worth implementing because you know better than me. You what's worth and what's not
