Is there a way I can create an Entity Relationship Diagram for my PHPMyAdmin database?

Could be available in MySQL Workbench – slhck Feb 3 '12 at 16:01
ERD? That's an emergency recovery Disk for an OS recovery so I don't see the tie in. Perhaps you should elaborate. – uSlackr Feb 3 '12 at 17:24
@uSlackr - Entity Relationship Diagram - there is a major shortage of unique three letter acronyms. (or were you kidding?) – Dave Becker Feb 3 '12 at 18:06
LOL!I'm an idiot – uSlackr Feb 3 '12 at 23:53

AFAK it can't be done using PHPMyAdmin but take a look on MySQL workbench it's a great tool to do this and you can connect to your local/remote database server.
