To set a default value for a column in phpMyAdmin, you can follow these steps:

  1. Access your phpMyAdmin interface.
  2. Select the database you want to work with from the left-hand panel.
  3. Click on the table name that contains the column you want to set the default value for.
  4. Once you have selected the table, click on the "Structure" tab at the top of the page.
  5. Locate the column you want to set the default value for and click on the "Change" link next to it.
  6. In the "Default" field, enter the desired default value for the column.
  7. Click on the "Save" button to apply the changes.


Now, whenever a new row is inserted into the table and no value is specified for the column, the default value you set will be automatically inserted into that column.
