Suggestions for alternatives to PhpMyAdmin
2. MySql Workbench
(I know I could use the command line interface but I don't use it often enough to be able to remember the syntax; I need a GUI.)
So I'm asking for your input. What do you recommend for a Graphical Interface to MySql?
Thanks in advance for your input.

Thanks for the feedback but I'm looking for Linux (ie: native) solutions only (ie: not in wine).
One feature of MySQLWorkbench though is that it seems to support running over SSL directly if the MySQL server is set up with SSL. I just use it over an SSH tunnel, easier for me.
I use MySQL Workbench over an SSH tunnel. If you really like PHPMyAdmin you should be able to set it to just run on localhost (on your Linode) (might require having a dedicated Apache or other web server instance); then set up an SSH tunnel that lets you connect to it.
I've given up on PhpMyAdmin. I see people saying to avoid it; as mentioned in my original post I've given up on trying to secure it …seems to be a mess.
What do you mean by "over an ssh tunnel"? Weren't you able to just configure things so you could just browse to MySQL Workbench via ssh in a browser? (ie: "https://")?
