I used to use phpminiadmin, but I switched to adminer. Both are good, adminer is better (subjective opinion).

I have no use for phpMyAdmin, I only need it if I need to quickly do something on the remote database and it doesn't allow external connections.

phpMyAdmin ofers some things that adminer doesn't, but if you are going to use a web-based software to fully manage your databases, you are doing it wrong. Adminer does most of the things you'll ever need.
