To remove an index from a table in phpMyAdmin, you can follow these steps:

  1. Open phpMyAdmin and select the database containing the table from which you want to remove the index.
  2. In the left-hand navigation panel, click on the table name to open its view.
  3. Once you have opened the table's view, look for the "Structure" tab at the top of the page. Click on it to switch to the structure view.
  4. In the structure view, you will see a list of all the columns in the table. Scroll down until you find the "Indexes" section.
  5. Within the "Indexes" section, you will see a list of all the indexes defined on the table. Find the index you want to remove and click on the trash bin icon or the "Drop" link next to it.
  6. phpMyAdmin will prompt you to confirm the removal of the index. Click on "OK" to proceed.
  7. Once you confirm the removal, phpMyAdmin will execute the SQL command to drop the index from the table. A success message will be displayed.


That's it! The index has now been removed from the table in phpMyAdmin.
