Is it possible to remotely control a mySQL database. For instance, can I control the database from my house on a server with a webhosting company somewhere in new york (without having to login to my control panel).

Thanks

with phpmyadmin you can manage a mysql database.
It's not important where the database is located or where the php-scripts are located. both can be at the other end of the world. As long as phpmyadmin can contact the database it doesn't matter.

So I can set up phpMyAdmin to control a mySQL database remotely just by changing say the server from "localhost" to whatever the ip is?

yes.
I've never done it before though.

also, make sure that mysql can be accesed from the internet.
