Now, what would be the most secure method? Is there a danger of loosing data with any of those procedures?
That depends...if you've password protected your MySQL login, then the most secure is via telnet using SQL commands/functions. If you do not have it password protected, then all of them are unsecure.

Should I backup the data before proceding?
You should always backup your scripts/files/tables, etc. before hacking the scripts/files/tables, etc. That is a basic activity of application development and computer use. Wink

I guess you are talking about the nph-setup.cgi when you say setup.cgi, right?
Oopss...right...sorry, I was thinking of Links SQL...momentary lapse of reason.

Why do you recommend installing another script (MySqlMan) to do it?
Because it allows you to view, edit, delete, import, export, and many other features. It is a time saver in terms of managing your tables. Editing scripts and then running them take more time in terms of testing and implementation.
