Manage your WordPress database with Adminer plugin

Adminer is a management tool that resembles phpMyAdmin, but works directly from a blog’s dashboard.

You can use Adminer for basic database operations to avoid opening the control panel of your hosting provider to use phpMyAdmin.

Adminer is able to restore a database backup, zipped or not, is easy to use and is reliable.

Do you really need it? Perhaps not, unless DB work is something you do frequently.
