phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool developed in PHP, that will give you 100 % control of a MySQL database. You could do practically anything - create fields, rows and tables, delete them or change their content, export or import a whole database or just a specific part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is vital if you would like to switch web hosting providers, simply because you can conveniently create a full backup of a database in a number of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You will end up with one file which contains the whole content of the database, so you may download it from the present provider, upload it to the hosting server of the new one and import it via the same tool on their end. Your internet site shall look exactly the same, because all script applications store their data in a database. With phpMyAdmin you can also effortlessly search and replace content of your preference across the entire web site - a word, an expression or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Web Hosting
phpMyAdmin is a part of every single Linux web hosting we offer and it's accessible through our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel. A tiny phpMyAdmin icon shall be shown on the right side of any database which you create in the MySQL Databases section of the CP and by clicking on the icon for the database that you want to access, you shall be logged into the application instantly in a new tab of your browser. Then you can do anything you would like - export the whole or part of the data, import a database, run SQL queries, search and modify terms. If you do not want to go through the Control Panel, you'll also be able to log in via a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you must know the database username and password. The last function is handy if you have to provide access to a database to a third-party.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server package through our company, you'll be able to access phpMyAdmin to manage any MySQL database you create in your account from the Hepsia hosting CP. A new tab shall open inside your browser whenever you click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a specific database and you will be logged into the sophisticated tool automatically, so you will not need to enter the database username or password. If you want to provide access to another person like a web developer, for instance, you can give them the database login info and they'll be able to log in through a direct link to phpMyAdmin, so they'll never need access to your whole internet hosting account. This option will allow you to keep your files and emails safe at all times.
