Learn what phpMyAdmin is, precisely what it’s employed for and the reasons why you will be needing it for your sites.
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool developed in PHP, which will offer you 100 % control over a MySQL database. You could do practically anything - create fields, rows and tables, erase them or alter their data, export or import a whole database or only a specific part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is essential if you would like to switch hosting companies, since you could conveniently create a full backup of a database in different formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You will end up with just one file containing the whole content of the database, so you can download it from the current provider, upload it to the server of the new one and import it using the same tool on their end. Your internet site will look exactly the same, due to the fact that all script apps store their content inside a database. With phpMyAdmin you can also easily search and replace information of your choice across the entire internet site - a word, a phrase or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Web Hosting
You'll be able to use phpMyAdmin to access any database that you create inside a web hosting
account bought from our company because we supply the tool by default with all of our plans. When you sign in to your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and create a new database inside the MySQL Databases section, a small phpMyAdmin icon shall appear on its right-hand side. What is needed to log in instantly is to click on that icon and the tool will open inside a new web browser tab, so that you can manage the database content. That's also how you could import a database if you're moving your site from another provider to our innovative cloud hosting platform. A different way to log in to a database is if you take advantage of our direct phpMyAdmin login URL, but you need to know the DB account information. This option will allow you to grant access to any database to other individuals, without giving them access to the whole web hosting account.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We offer phpMyAdmin with each and every semi-dedicated server
account due to the fact that all our packages support MySQL-driven sites. The tool is incorporated in our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and if you want to change any database, you just need to go to the MySQL section and click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a given database. You will not need any login credentials due to the fact that you shall be signed in automatically. If you don't want to use your Control Panel or you want to provide access to any database to another individual for whatever reason, you shall also have an alternative option - to navigate to our phpMyAdmin direct login webpage in which our system will require the database username and password. If you hire a website design company, for instance, you can take advantage of this option to permit them to work on your site without giving them access to any files, emails or some other databases in the account.
