Find out what phpMyAdmin is, exactly what it’s used for and the reasons why you will need it for your web sites.
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool coded in PHP, which shall offer you full control over a MySQL database. You may do absolutely everything - create fields, rows and tables, erase 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 vital if you want to switch hosting companies, simply because you can conveniently create a full backup of a database in different formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You will end up with just one file which contains the entire content of the database, so you can download it from the present provider, upload it to the server of the new one and import it using the same tool on their end. Your internet site shall look exactly the same, due to the fact that all script applications store their content in a database. With phpMyAdmin you can also quickly search and replace content of your preference across the whole web site - a word, a phrase or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Hosting
We offer phpMyAdmin with all of our Linux shared plans
and you shall be able to access it from the MySQL Databases section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you are signed into your Internet hosting account, you could click on the phpMyAdmin icon, which will be on the right-hand side of each database you have set up, and you shall be signed in automatically. However, you can also access a database directly by navigating to our phpMyAdmin login page and typing in the corresponding username and password. You shall have the exact same level of access in either case and you shall be able to carry out all procedures the software tool supports, to enable you to quickly import, export or change each of your databases. The direct link may be extremely useful in case a third person, such as a web designer, needs access to a particular database and you don't want to give them complete access to the web hosting account.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host any script-driven Internet site inside a semi-dedicated server
account from our company, you shall be able to handle the site database manually without difficulty since you can sign in to phpMyAdmin directly from your website hosting CP. Any MySQL database you create shall be listed inside the Databases section of your account and it'll 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 in your web browser and it'll log you in automatically, to enable you to export/import or change any content you want. We also offer the option to sign in directly to phpMyAdmin without employing your CP. In cases like this, the login is manual and requires a username and a password. This feature permits you to provide access to a particular database to other people without giving them access to your web hosting account.
