    It's fairly straightforward, actually. You just copy it somewhere on the server and then edit the config.inc (I believe) file to match your server settings.

    Yes, extract the zip file, edit config.inc.php (see the variables and the comments for them at the top of the file) to set your database name, username, and password, and it's done.

    I instead use SQL Manager for MySQL (http://www.sqlmanager.net/products/mysql/manager). Not free, although there's a trial, and your host must allow remote connections to MySQL, preferably through a whitelist of IPs for security reasons. I use the same tool, although a PostgreSQL version, for managing PostgreSQL databases. It's much, much nicer than phpMyAdmin, but, like I said, not free.

    It's a different classification than phpMyAdmin. PMA is web-based and open-source (therefore free) whereas SQL Manager is an application and costs $170 or something.

    I'd recommend it if this is for a job and your employer can pay for it. Otherwise it's too expensive.
