How do I access my Joomla database?

Last updated on September 25, 2022 @ 8:11 am

If you’re looking to access your Joomla database, you can use the Joomla Administrator. You can find the administrator by going to:


Once you’re in the administrator, you’ll see a list of options on the left-hand side. Click on the “Database” option.

PRO TIP: If you are not a Joomla administrator, you will not be able to access the Joomla database. If you attempt to do so, you will receive an error message.

You’ll see a list of all the databases that are currently installed on your Joomla installation. To access your database, click on the name of the database that you want to access.

The next screen will show you all of the objects in the database. You can view and modify these objects by clicking on the “Edit” link next to the object that you want to access.
