Discover what phpMyAdmin is, what it’s used for and the reason why you will be needing it for your web sites.
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool coded in PHP, which shall give you total control over a MySQL database. You can do virtually everything - set up fields, rows and tables, delete them or change their data, export or import a whole database or only a particular part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is essential in case you need to switch hosting providers, because you may very easily generate a full backup of a database in a number of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You'll end up with a single file that contains the entire content of the database, so you can download it from the present provider, upload it to the web server of the new one and import it through the same tool on their end. Your site will look exactly the same, due to the fact that all script applications store their content inside a database. With phpMyAdmin you may also quickly search and replace information of your choice across the entire internet site - a word, a phrase or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Website Hosting
phpMyAdmin is featured as an element of our Linux website hosting packages and you will be able to access it at any time via your Hepsia CP. All databases that you create inside the account will be listed in alphabetical order inside the MySQL Databases section of the Control Panel and all it shall take to gain access to any of them shall be to click on the tiny phpMyAdmin icon, that'll be on the right side of each database. You will not have to type in any info, since you'll be logged in automatically in a new browser tab. If you prefer to sign in manually and not going through the Control Panel, you will be able to do so via our direct phpMyAdmin login page where you'll have to enter the database username and password. This option is handy if you want to grant access to a particular database to a third party, such as a web designer.
