What is phpMyAdmin? What is its function? Why will your websites need it?
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, which shall give you full control over a MySQL database. You could do virtually everything - create fields, rows and tables, delete them or modify their data, export or import an entire database or just a certain part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is vital if you need to switch hosting providers, due to the fact that you may easily create a full backup of a database in a number of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You shall end up with just one file that contains the whole content of the database, so you can download it from the present provider, upload it to the server of the new one and import it through the same tool on their end. Your site will look exactly the same, because all script applications store their content inside a database. With phpMyAdmin you could also effortlessly search and replace content material of your preference across the whole website - a word, an expression or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Cloud Hosting
phpMyAdmin is part of every single cloud hosting package
that we provide and it is accessible via our custom-built Hepsia CP. A small phpMyAdmin icon will be shown on the right side of each database you create 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 instantly in a new tab of your browser. Then you can do everything you'd like - export the entire or part of the data, import a database, run SQL queries, search and modify terms. If you don't want to employ the Control Panel, you will also be able to log in through a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you must know the database account information. The last function is beneficial if you have to grant access to a database to a third-party.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
phpMyAdmin is amongst the tools which come with our semi-dedicated hosting packages
. You may log into it and manage all of your MySQL databases if you click on the phpMyAdmin icon on the right side of each database that you have created through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. You shall not need to do anything else, as our system shall log you in automatically and you can proceed with the tasks you have to do - import a database file from another company, modify some content, etcetera. You may access a database by using our direct phpMyAdmin login page too, but in this case you will need to enter the correct account information. You can use this option if you hire a web designer, as they can work on your website without accessing your hosting Control Panel. That way, all files and e-mails you have inside the account shall be protected.
