phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool developed in PHP, which shall present you with complete control over a MySQL database. You can do practically everything - set up fields, rows and tables, remove them or alter their data, export or import a whole database or just a specific part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is vital if you need to switch hosting companies, because you can conveniently create a full backup of a database in a variety of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You'll end up with one file which contains the whole content of the database, so you can easily download it from the present provider, upload it to the web server of the new one and import it through the same tool on their end. Your internet site shall look exactly the same, due to the fact that all script applications store their data inside a database. With phpMyAdmin you may also quickly search and replace information of your preference across the entire web site - a word, a phrase or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Website Hosting
phpMyAdmin is provided as an element of our Linux website hosting and you will be able to access it at any time via your Hepsia Control Panel. All databases you create inside the account will be listed in alphabetical order inside the MySQL Databases section of the Control Panel and all it shall take to gain access to any of them shall be to click on the small phpMyAdmin icon, that'll be on the right side of each database. You won't have to enter any information, since you will be logged in automatically in a new web browser tab. If you prefer to log in manually and not going through the Control Panel, you will be able to do so through our direct phpMyAdmin login page in which you will have to type in the database account information. This option is helpful if you have to grant access to a specific database to some third party, for example a web designer.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you will be able to access phpMyAdmin to handle any MySQL database which you create inside your account from the Hepsia hosting CP. A new tab shall open in your Internet browser whenever you click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a specific database and you will be logged into the state-of-the-art tool automatically, so you'll not have to enter the database username or password. If you would like to grant access to another person like a web designer, for instance, you can give them the database login info and they shall be able to log in through a direct link to phpMyAdmin, so they shall never need access to your entire hosting account. This option will allow you to keep your files and emails safe at all times.
