The client has been working with MySQL his whole life, wants me to make a front end for a site but insists on making what he calls the backend in my terms the database himself. So he wants the ability to drop and add rows, tables from the database itself somehow implemented, any ideas?

    Tell him that he needs to reset his brain and start learning again.

    You basically have to make a big text field and a button 'Execute' below it. And add a status label that'll show the number of rows affected.

    For some extra cash, you can make an Output window and a result table :D

    Open the terminal and auto start MySQL client. Because client knows best!

    Let him design the db and add an admin panel. This is going to be a nightmare to maintain oh and have continuous db backup cron.

    Create two databases. One you control that actually powers the site and a fake one he can play with and destroy. You can then sync over the real db over the top to fix it.
