Could someone recommend a db management tool that supports SQLite, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and is web-based? By 'web-based' I just mean it can be run in a browser locally or remotely.

I think this would be considered a shopping question if it weren't for the fact that so few of these (if any) exist. – Richard Nov 6 '11 at 13:41
This is a curious question. Browsers can't interact with databases directly, so the so that would need to be done on the server-side (like phpPgAdmin etc), but that wouldn't make much sense for SQLite which is not client-server. Can you explain your situation a bit more: why you need the tool and why it needs to run in a browser? – Jack Douglas Nov 7 '11 at 7:59
I suppose you want "free" as well? – gbn Nov 7 '11 at 9:14
Not necessarily free. I have these databases in the above 3 flavors and would like to use one tool to manage them. – Computist Nov 9 '11 at 15:08

If a remote desktop is an acceptable web-based solution, you could have Navicat Premium on a remote server that way you don't need the tool locally (premium is the cross-databases edition of the tool: it has MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQL Lite and even SQL Server) .

But you would find cheaper/free if you simply install a tool per database type (e.g. phpMyAdmin, Chive, phpPgAdmin, SQLiteManager).

While not truly web based, you can start the dbWatch interface from a java webstart session. You can test this on our webpage ( It supports Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL, Sybase, PostgreSQL and Ingres. Other platforms will be supported in the future.

I work there, so you know :-) -Chris
