phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool developed in PHP, which will provide you with 100 % control of a MySQL database. You could do literally everything - set up fields, rows and tables, delete them or modify their content, export or import a whole database or just a specific part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is necessary in case you would like to switch hosting companies, simply because you may easily generate a full backup of a database in a number of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You will end up with a single file containing the whole content of the database, so you could download it from the current provider, upload it to the hosting server of the new one and import it via the same tool on their end. Your site shall look exactly the same, simply because all script applications store their content in a database. With phpMyAdmin you may also effortlessly search and replace information of your choice across the whole internet site - a word, a phrase or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Hosting
You shall be able to employ phpMyAdmin to access any database that you set up inside a hosting account purchased from our company as we provide the tool by default with all our packages. After you log in to your Hepsia Internet hosting CP and set up a new database inside the MySQL Databases section, a tiny phpMyAdmin icon will appear on its right-hand side. What it takes to log in instantly is to click on this icon and the tool shall open inside a new Internet browser tab, so that you can control the database content. That is also how you can import a database if you're moving your Internet site from another service provider to our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform. An alternative way to log in to a database is if you take advantage of our direct phpMyAdmin login URL, but you should know the DB account info. This option will enable you to provide access to any database to other individuals, without granting them access to the whole website hosting account.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host a script-driven site inside a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to administer the site database manually effortlessly as you can log in to phpMyAdmin directly from your website hosting Control Panel. Any MySQL database you set up shall 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 particular database is as simple as clicking on that icon and our system shall open a new tab in your web browser and it shall log you in automatically, so you can export/import or change any content that you'd like. We also offer the option to sign in directly to phpMyAdmin without employing your CP. In this situation, the login is manual and requires a username and a password. This feature makes it possible for you to grant access to a specific database to other people without giving them access to your website hosting account.
