phpMyAdmin is a powerful PHP-based software tool employed to handle MySQL databases via a web interface. You could use it to run MySQL commands, create, edit and erase cells, rows and tables or manage users with various levels of access to the database in question. Every single one of these tasks can easily be completed from any device provided that you have an Internet browser and access to the web hosting account in which the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you can also export or import a whole database, which is a very beneficial function if you need to migrate a website from one web hosting company 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 hosting account to another, preview a whole database in a spreadsheet application for instance Microsoft Excel, etc.
phpMyAdmin in Cloud Hosting
phpMyAdmin is a part of each Linux cloud hosting which we offer and it's accessible via our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel. A little phpMyAdmin icon shall be displayed on the right side of every database which you set up inside the MySQL Databases section of the CP and by clicking on the icon for the database that you want to access, you'll be logged into the application automatically in a new tab of your web browser. Then you can do everything you would like - export the whole or part of the content, import a database, run SQL queries, search and change terms. If you do not want to use the CP, you'll also be able to log in using a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you should know the database account information. The last feature is useful if you have to give access to a database to a third-party.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host a script-driven website inside a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to administer the website database manually effortlessly simply because you can log in to phpMyAdmin directly from your hosting CP. Any MySQL database that you create will be listed inside the Databases section of your account and it shall have a phpMyAdmin icon on its right side. Accessing the tool for a specific database is as simple as clicking on that icon and our system will open a new tab in your web browser and it shall log you in automatically, to enable you to export/import or change any content that you'd like. We also provide the option to log in directly to phpMyAdmin without employing your CP. In cases like this, the login is manual and requires a username and a password. This feature allows you to grant access to a specific database to other individuals without giving them access to your web hosting account.
