To delete records from a table using phpMyAdmin, you can follow these steps:

  1. Open phpMyAdmin in your web browser.
  2. Select the database that contains the table from which you want to delete records.
  3. In the left-hand sidebar, click on the table name to access its structure and data.
  4. By default, you will see a tab labeled "Browse". Click on it to view the records in the table.
  5. Scroll down to find the record(s) you want to delete. You can use the pagination or search function to locate specific records.
  6. Once you have identified the record(s) you want to delete, check the box(es) next to them. You can select multiple records by checking multiple boxes.
  7. At the bottom or top of the table, you will find a dropdown menu labeled "With selected:". Click on it and choose the "Delete" option.
  8. After selecting "Delete", you may be asked to confirm the deletion. Review the confirmation prompt and click "OK" to proceed with the deletion.
  9. The selected record(s) will be permanently deleted from the table.

It is important to note that deleting records using phpMyAdmin is irreversible. Be cautious and ensure that you have selected the correct records before proceeding with the deletion.
