Hi there @cerebromedicalinformatics,

Regarding the difference between a Managed MySQL cluster and a MySQL server installed on a Droplet, I would recommend checking the two answers here:

Regarding the PHPmyAdmin question, yes it looks like that PHPmyAdmin is installed by default on the MySQL image from the Marketplace:

You can access phpMyAdmin immediately by visiting the Droplet’s IP address in your browser followed by /phpmyadmin.

Hope that this helps. Regards, Bobby
