Find out what phpMyAdmin is, precisely what it’s useful for and the reasons why you will need it for your sites.
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, which shall offer you 100 % control over a MySQL database. You can do literally anything - set up fields, rows and tables, delete them or change their data, export or import a whole database or just a specific part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is very important in case you want to switch hosting companies, since you may effortlessly generate a full backup of a database in a number of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You will end up with a single file that contains the entire content of the database, so you can easily 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 site will look exactly the same, for the reason that all script apps store their content within a database. With phpMyAdmin you can also quickly search and replace content of your choice across the whole web site - a word, an expression or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Hosting
We provide phpMyAdmin with all of our Linux shared packages and you shall be able to access it via the MySQL Databases section of your Hepsia CP. If you're signed into your website hosting account, you could click on the phpMyAdmin icon, that'll be on the right-hand side of each database you have set up, and you'll be logged in immediately. As an alternative, you could also access a database directly by visiting our phpMyAdmin login page and entering the corresponding account information. You shall have the exact same level of access in either case and you will be able to complete all operations which the software tool supports, so that you can effortlessly import, export or change any of your databases. The direct link can be extremely useful if a third person, like a web designer, needs access to a particular database and you do not want to give them complete access to the Internet hosting account.
