PhpPgAdmin is one of the most popular tools for controlling PostgreSQL databases. It's intuitive, at the same time powerful and you're able to perform any action you want to - import, export and / or update any cell, row or table within a database; grant, revoke or modify the permissions of a particular user; execute SQL queries and a lot more. When you want to have a backup of a PostgreSQL-driven website, for instance, or transfer it to a different hosting provider, you'll be able to export your entire database in a format that you choose - SQL, CSV, XML, XHTML and many others. When you use phpPgAdmin, you'll have complete control over your databases and everything linked to them. The tool was in fact intended to be the PostgreSQL equivalent of phpMyAdmin, but today they have little in common when it comes to the interface.
phpPgAdmin in Shared Hosting
PhpPgAdmin is among the software tools you are able to access from the Hepsia Control Panel which is included in each Linux shared hosting package we supply. Any time you make a new PostgreSQL database in the Databases part of your account, a phpPgAdmin icon appears close to it, so that you can just click on it and you'll be logged into the app directly. You will not have to submit any login credentials as long as you log in through your Control Panel, however if you want to give access to a particular database to a different person, they are able to use a direct phpPgAdmin login link where they can submit the username and the password that you provide them with and work on the database without getting access to any other content in your web hosting account. This feature is useful when you hire a web designer to create or improve your site.
phpPgAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We offer phpPgAdmin with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages and you will be able to use it to manage any PostgreSQL database that you set up from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. As soon as you create a new database, a phpPgAdmin button will appear next to it, so with only a click you will be able to sign in to the application and see the content of that particular database. You won't have to enter any username or password provided that you log in through your website hosting account, but if you prefer to log in manually or to give access to a database to some other individual, you will also have the option to do it. Thus, if you manage the account but the company IT person controls the content, for instance, he will be able to work on the site without having access to any emails or some other confidential info.
