phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool coded in PHP, which will give you full control of a MySQL database. You could do literally anything - set up fields, rows and tables, delete them or change their content, export or import a whole database or only a specific part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is very important if you need to switch hosting providers, simply because you could easily generate a full backup of a database in a variety of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You'll end up with one file that contains the whole content of the database, so you could download it from the present provider, upload it to the server of the new one and import it via the same tool on their end. Your site will look exactly the same, because all script apps store their data inside a database. With phpMyAdmin you may also effortlessly search and replace content of your preference across the whole internet site - a word, an expression or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Hosting
phpMyAdmin is part of every single Linux shared service we offer and it's accessible from our custom Hepsia Control Panel. A little phpMyAdmin icon will be displayed on the right side of every database that you create inside 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 automatically in a new tab of your browser. Then you can do everything you would like - export the entire or a part of the content, 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 through a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you need to know the database account information. The last feature is beneficial if you have to provide access to a database to a third-party.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your script-driven website in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to handle the site database manually effortlessly as you can sign in to phpMyAdmin directly from your hosting CP. Any MySQL database which you set up shall be listed in the Databases section of your account and it will have a phpMyAdmin icon on its right side. Accessing the tool for a particular database is as easy as clicking on that icon and our system shall open a new tab in your browser and it'll log you in automatically, so that you can export/import or modify any content that you would like. We also provide the option to sign in straight to phpMyAdmin without using your Control Panel. In such cases, the login is manual and requires a username and a password. This function will allow you to grant access to a particular database to other people without giving them access to your Internet hosting account.
