Hi everyone,

I need some PHP script to make a documentation of database (like
phpdocumentator, ), moreover I need that document act
like a database administrator, in other words, I need something that
permits by an interface to do ALTER TABLEs commands.

If someone know something like that get in touch.

You may want to try Metabase. It can be used to perform both your needs.

It provides functions to perform schema reverse engineering support.

It can also represent your database schema in a XML format that  
describes tables, fields, indexes, primary keys, sequences, etc..

After you install the schema with a XML definition, you can just change  
the schema XML definition file and ask Metabase to execute the necessary  
SQL to upgrade the installed schema to the new schema version, and it  
will do so without affecting any data already installed in the database.
