Discover what phpMyAdmin is, what it’s used for and the reason why you will need it for your sites.
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, which will present you with complete control over a MySQL database. You could do practically anything - set up fields, rows and tables, delete them or modify their data, export or import a whole database or just a specific part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is essential when you want to switch hosting providers, simply because you may effortlessly create a full backup of a database in a number of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You'll end up with only one file which contains the entire content of the database, so you can easily download it from the current provider, upload it to the server of the new one and import it via the same tool on their end. Your internet site will look exactly the same, simply because all script apps store their content within a database. With phpMyAdmin you could also quickly search and replace content material of your preference across the whole internet site - a word, an expression or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Cloud Web Hosting
phpMyAdmin is offered as a part of our Linux cloud web hosting packages
and you'll be able to access it anytime via your Hepsia CP. All databases you create in the account shall be listed in alphabetical order within the MySQL Databases section of the CP and all it will take to log in to any of them shall be to click on the small phpMyAdmin icon, that'll be on the right side of each database. You won't need to input any information, since you will be logged in automatically in a new web browser tab. If you prefer to log in by hand rather than using the CP, you will be able to do so through our direct phpMyAdmin login page in which you will have to input the database username and password. This option is helpful if you need to grant access to a particular database to a third party, for instance a web designer.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your script-driven site in a semi-dedicated server
account from our company, you will be able to control the site database manually without difficulty because you can log in to phpMyAdmin directly from your web hosting CP. Any MySQL database which you set up shall be listed in the Databases section of your account and it will have a phpMyAdmin icon on its right side. Accessing the tool for a specific database is as easy as clicking on that icon and our system will open a new tab inside your browser and it shall log you in automatically, to enable you to export/import or change any content you want. We also offer the option to log in directly to phpMyAdmin without going through your Control Panel. In such cases, the login is manual and requires a username and a password. This feature permits you to provide access to a certain database to other people without giving them access to your web hosting account.
