Wide range of database support


PHPRunner supports four database types including MySQL, SQL Server, MS Access, and PostgreSQL. Even if you don't have a database, the software will help you create one.

PHPRunner lets you connect to your local database or a database located on a remote server. If you have a remote MySQL database, which does not allow for a direct connection, you will be able to connect to it using "PHP proxy" method.

Visual Editor


WYSIWYG Visual Editor in PHPRunner allows you to customize the look and feel of your application with ease of drag-n-drop. PHPRunner will present you with the proposed layout for each page. However, all of the elements on the pages can easily be modified. The Visual Editor allows you to drag and drop, copy and paste the objects around the page. For all of the fields and labels on the page you can change the font, size, color, style, indentation, and alignment. The Visual Editor allows you to jump into generated HTML code and make your modifications there.
