Find out what phpMyAdmin is, exactly what it’s utilized for and the reasons why you will need it for your websites.
phpMyAdmin is a highly efficient PHP-based software tool used to handle MySQL databases via a web interface. You could use it to run MySQL commands, create, edit and remove cells, rows and tables or handle users with different levels of access to the database in question. These tasks could be performed from any device provided that you have a browser and access to the hosting account in which the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you may also export or import an entire database, which is a very helpful feature if you want to migrate a web site from one web hosting provider to another. Several different file formats are supported for the so-called dump file - CSV, SQL, XML and PDF, based on what you want to do - move the content from one web hosting account to another, preview an entire database in a spreadsheet app like Microsoft Excel, and so forth.
phpMyAdmin in Website Hosting
phpMyAdmin is a part of each Linux website hosting package
that we provide and it is accessible via our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel. A small phpMyAdmin icon shall be shown on the right side of every database that you set up inside the MySQL Databases section of the CP and by clicking on the icon for the database which you want to access, you will be logged into the application automatically in a new tab of your browser. Then you can do anything you'd like - export the entire or a part of the data, import a database, run SQL queries, search and change terms. If you don't want to go through the Control Panel, you'll also be able to sign in through a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you ought to know the database username and password. The last feature is helpful if you have to give access to a database to a third-party.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We provide phpMyAdmin with each semi-dedicated server
account due to the fact that all our packages support MySQL-driven websites. The tool is integrated in our in-house built Hepsia Internet hosting CP and if you'd like to modify any database, you just need to go to the MySQL section and click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a certain database. You won't need any login credentials since you'll be signed in automatically. If you do not want to use your CP or you would like to grant access to any database to another individual for whatever reason, you shall also have an alternative option - to visit our phpMyAdmin direct login webpage in which our system will require the database account information. If you hire a website design company, for instance, you can employ that option to enable them to work on your website without giving them access to any files, e-mails or other databases inside the account.
