Discover what phpMyAdmin is, exactly what it’s utilized for and the reason why you will be needing it for your sites.
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, which shall give you complete control over a MySQL database. You could do literally everything - create fields, rows and tables, erase them or modify their data, export or import an entire database or only a particular part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is very important when you need to switch hosting providers, due to the fact that you could effortlessly generate a full backup of a database in a variety of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You shall end up with just one file which contains the entire content of the database, so you could download it from the current provider, upload it to the hosting server of the new one and import it using the same tool on their end. Your internet site shall look exactly the same, because all script apps store their data in a database. With phpMyAdmin you could also effortlessly search and replace information of your choosing across the entire website - a word, a phrase or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Website Hosting
phpMyAdmin is a part of each and every Linux website hosting package
that we provide and it is accessible from our tailor-made Hepsia CP. A little phpMyAdmin icon shall be shown on the right side of each database you create in the MySQL Databases section of the Control Panel and by clicking on the icon for the database that you want to access, you'll be logged into the application immediately in a new tab of your Internet browser. Then you can do everything you'd like - export the entire or part of the data, import a database, run SQL queries, search and modify terms. If you do not want to employ the Control Panel, you shall also be able to log in using a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you need to know the database account information. The last feature is beneficial if you have to give access to a database to a third-party.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We offer phpMyAdmin with each semi-dedicated server
account since our packages support MySQL-driven sites. The tool is integrated inside our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and if you would like to change any database, you just have to go to the MySQL section and click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a given database. You won't need any login credentials because you shall be logged in automatically. If you don't want to use your CP or you want to provide access to any database to another individual for some reason, you will also have an alternative option - to navigate to our phpMyAdmin direct login webpage in which our system will require the database details. If you hire a web designer, for example, you can employ that option to allow them to work on your website without granting them access to any files, emails or any other databases in the account.
