Find out what phpMyAdmin is, what it’s employed for and why you will need it for your websites.
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, that will offer you total control over a MySQL database. You can do literally everything - set up fields, rows and tables, erase them or change their content, export or import an entire database or just a specific part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is essential in case you want to switch web hosting companies, since you could effortlessly 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 hosting server of the new one and import it through the same tool on their end. Your internet site will look exactly the same, for the reason that all script applications store their content in a database. With phpMyAdmin you can also conveniently search and replace content of your choice across the whole web site - a word, an expression or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Cloud Website Hosting
phpMyAdmin is available as part of our cloud website hosting
and you'll be able to access it whenever you want through your Hepsia CP. All databases that you set up inside the account will be listed in alphabetical order inside the MySQL Databases section of the CP and all it shall take to log in to any of them will be to click on the little phpMyAdmin icon, that'll be on the right side of each and every database. You won't need to input any info, since you'll be logged in automatically in a new Internet browser tab. If you prefer to sign in manually and not using the CP, you'll be able to do so using our direct phpMyAdmin login page where you'll have to type in the database account information. This option is useful if you need to grant access to a specific database to some third party, such as a web designer.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server
plan through our company, you will be able to access phpMyAdmin to control any MySQL database that you create inside your account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. A new tab will open within your Internet browser as soon as you click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a specific database and you will be logged into the advanced tool automatically, so you'll not need to type the database username or password. If you would like to grant access to another person such as a website designer, for example, you could give them the database login information and they'll be able to log in using a direct link to phpMyAdmin, so they will never need access to your whole hosting account. This option will allow you to keep your files and emails safe at all times.
