phpMyAdmin is an efficient PHP-based software tool employed to handle MySQL databases via a web interface. You may employ it to run MySQL commands, create, change and erase cells, rows and tables or control users with different levels of access to the database in question. These tasks could be carried out from any device provided that you have a web browser and access to the web hosting account in which the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you could also export or import a whole database, which is an extremely helpful function if you want to migrate an Internet site from one hosting provider to another. Many different file formats are supported for the so-called dump file - CSV, SQL, XML and PDF, based on what you need to do - move the content from one internet hosting account to another, preview an entire database in a spreadsheet app for instance Microsoft Excel, and so forth.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Hosting
phpMyAdmin is part of every Linux shared hosting package which we provide and it's accessible from our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. A tiny phpMyAdmin icon will be displayed on the right side of every database you set up inside the MySQL Databases section of the CP and by clicking on the icon for the database you want to access, you'll be logged into the application instantly in a new tab of your Internet browser. Then you can do anything you'd like - export the whole or part of the content, import a database, run SQL queries, search and change terms. If you don't want to use the CP, you will also be able to log in via a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you should know the database account information. The last feature is beneficial if you have to give access to a database to a third-party.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We provide phpMyAdmin with each and every semi-dedicated server account as all our plans support MySQL-driven websites. The tool is included in our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and if you want to change any database, you just have to go to the MySQL section and click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a specific database. You shall not need any login credentials since you will be logged in automatically. If you don't want to employ your Control Panel or you need to give access to any database to another person for some reason, you shall also have an alternative option - to go to our phpMyAdmin direct login webpage where our system shall require the database account information. If you hire a web development company, for instance, you can employ that option to enable them to work on your Internet site without granting them access to any files, email messages or any other databases in the account.
