Discover more about what phpMyAdmin is and the best way to take advantage of it as an administrative tool for all your MySQL databases.
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool developed in PHP, that will give you full control of a MySQL database. You could do absolutely everything - set up fields, rows and tables, delete them or alter their content, export or import a whole database or just a particular part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is necessary in case you would like to switch web hosting companies, since you can easily generate a full backup of a database in a variety of 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 hosting server of the new one and import it via the same tool on their end. Your internet site will look exactly the same, simply because all script apps store their content inside a database. With phpMyAdmin you can also quickly search and replace information of your choosing across the entire website - a word, a phrase or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Web Hosting
phpMyAdmin is featured as part of our Linux shared web hosting
and you will be able to access it at any time from your Hepsia CP. All databases you create in the account will be listed in alphabetical order in the MySQL Databases section of the Control Panel and all it will take to gain access to any of them shall be to click on the small phpMyAdmin icon, that'll be on the right side of each and every database. You won't have to type in any information, because you will be logged in automatically in a new browser tab. If you'd like to log in manually instead of going through the CP, you shall be able to do this through our direct phpMyAdmin login page where you shall have to enter the database account information. This option is useful if you have to grant access to a specific database to a third party, for instance a web designer.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your script-driven website in a semi-dedicated server
account from our company, you will be able to manage the site database manually without any difficulty since you can sign in to phpMyAdmin straight from your hosting Control Panel. Any MySQL database that you create will be listed inside the Databases section of your account and it shall have a phpMyAdmin icon on its right side. Accessing the tool for a particular database is as basic as clicking on that icon and our system shall open a new tab in your Internet browser and it shall log you in automatically, so you can export/import or modify any content that you would like. We also provide the option to log in directly to phpMyAdmin without using your Control Panel. In this situation, the login is manual and requires a username and a password. This function enables you to give access to a specific database to other people without giving them access to your website hosting account.
