I have a simple MySQL database that has a main table, a few lookup tables and an update history/log table. I need to create a simple GUI for a non-technical user to add/edit records as a proof of concept. Can be either web or desktop based.

Can anyone recommend alternatives to MS Access for this task?

I used xataface (http://xataface.com/) on quite a few end user facing projects. Very simple to set up, and pretty robust.

A desktop alternative to phpmyadmin is HeidiSQL.  Works well, and Open Source

Thanks. Can custom forms to edit and insert be created with phpMyAdmin? I want to only allow users to edit a few columns in the table.

phpMyAdmin is more of a developer tool. Xataface looks like more what you're after.

I'm always looking for something like this that allows your small database forms app to be hosted on the web - any suggestions?
