To track changes to a database table using phpMyAdmin, you can follow these steps:

  1. Access your database through phpMyAdmin.
  2. Select the desired database from the left-hand navigation pane.
  3. Click on the "Operations" tab at the top of the page.
  4. Scroll down to the "Table Options" section and enable the "Track changes" checkbox.
  5. Select the desired options under the "Track changes" section, such as the level of detail and the retention period for changes.
  6. Click on the "Go" button to save the changes and enable tracking for the selected table.


After enabling the change tracking feature, phpMyAdmin will start logging changes made to the table you have selected. You can view the changes by following these steps:

  1. Select the desired table from the left-hand navigation pane.
  2. Click on the "Operations" tab at the top of the page.
  3. Scroll down to the "Table Maintenance" section and click on the "Tracking" link.
  4. On the tracking page, you will find a list of changes made to the table, including the type of change, the user who made the change, and the timestamp of the change.


You can use the filtering options on the tracking page to narrow down the changes based on specific criteria like the type of operation, the user, or the timestamp.
