Learn what phpMyAdmin is, just what it’s employed for and why you will be needing it for your web sites.
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool coded in PHP, that will provide you with full control of a MySQL database. You may do literally anything - create fields, rows and tables, delete them or change their content, export or import a whole database or just a specific part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is essential when you need to switch web hosting providers, because you can easily create a full backup of a database in a number of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You will end up with just one file which contains the entire content of the database, so you could 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 website will look exactly the same, simply because all script apps store their data in a database. With phpMyAdmin you may also effortlessly search and replace information of your choosing across the whole website - a word, an expression or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Hosting
You'll be able to use phpMyAdmin to access any database that you set up inside a hosting account acquired from our company simply because we provide the tool by default with all hosting plans. After you log in to your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and set up a new database inside the MySQL Databases section, a little phpMyAdmin icon will appear on its right-hand side. All it takes to log in immediately is to click on that icon and the tool will open in a new browser tab, so you can manage the database content. That is also how you can import a database if you are moving your site from another provider to our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform. Another way to log in to a database is if you take advantage of our direct phpMyAdmin login URL, but you need to know the DB account info. This option will enable you to provide access to any database to other people, without granting them access to the entire Internet hosting account.
