display informations of the connected database

DbExplorerModule is a module that provides a quick overview to the connected database inside your application.

It's a kind of tool to support the development process (e.g. while you using Gii) of your web application. So you haven't to change to a other application such like Chive or Adminer if you like only a fast overview to the tables/views etc. in your app.


Yii 1.1.13 or above... (no older Yii versions!)


  • install and explore the code of the demo application
  • or put in the configuration file (main.php) a code snippet like this
        // uncomment the following to enable the Gii tool
            // If removed, Gii defaults to localhost only. Edit carefully to taste.
            // the path to the application layout file
            'appLayout'=>'application.views.layouts.column1', /* optional */
             // key name for RBAC- support
            'rbac'=>'exploreDB', /* optional */
            // or allow access for one user
            'superUserName'=>'admin',  /* optional: see Yii::app()->user->name */            

Internationalization (I18N)

The widget support german,english and french at the moment. If you have a translation of the message file in an other language than feel you free and send me a mail with your translation!
