Learn more about what phpMyAdmin is and the best way to make use of it as a management tool for your MySQL databases.
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, that will offer you 100 % control over a MySQL database. You could do virtually anything - create fields, rows and tables, delete them or modify their content, export or import a whole database or only a specific part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is necessary when you need to switch web hosting companies, since you may easily create a full backup of a database in several formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You'll end up with one file that contains the whole content of the database, so you can easily download it from the current provider, upload it to the web server of the new one and import it using the same tool on their end. Your website will look exactly the same, simply because all script apps store their content inside a database. With phpMyAdmin you can also quickly search and replace content material of your choice across the entire web site - a word, an expression or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Cloud Hosting
phpMyAdmin is a part of each cloud service
that we offer and it is accessible through our custom-made Hepsia CP. A small phpMyAdmin icon shall be shown on the right side of any database which you create in the MySQL Databases section of the Control Panel and by clicking on the icon for the database which you want to access, you shall be logged into the app immediately in a new tab of your web browser. Then you can do anything you'd like - export the whole or part of the content, import a database, run SQL queries, search and change terms. If you do not want to employ the Control Panel, you will also be able to sign in through a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you must know the database username and password. The last feature is beneficial if you have to provide access to a database to a third-party.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server
plan from our company, you shall be able to access phpMyAdmin to handle any MySQL database that you create in your account from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. A new tab will open in your web browser as soon as you click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a specific database and you will be logged into the advanced tool automatically, so you will not have to input the database username or password. If you would like to give access to another person like a web developer, for instance, you can give them the database login information and they'll be able to log in by using a direct link to phpMyAdmin, so they will never need access to your entire web hosting account. This option will allow you to keep your files and emails safe at all times.
