Discover what phpMyAdmin is, exactly what it’s used for and the reason why you will be needing it for your websites.
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool coded in PHP, that will give you total control of a MySQL database. You could do virtually everything - set up fields, rows and tables, delete them or modify their content, export or import a whole database or only a particular part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is very important if you need to switch web hosting providers, because you can conveniently create a full backup of a database in a variety of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You'll end up with only one file containing the whole content of the database, so you can easily download it from the current provider, upload it to the hosting server of the new one and import it using the same tool on their end. Your site will look exactly the same, due to the fact that all script apps store their data within a database. With phpMyAdmin you may also conveniently search and replace content of your choosing across the whole website - a word, a phrase or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Hosting
phpMyAdmin is available as a part of our Linux hosting packages and you will be able to access it at any time via your Hepsia Control Panel. All databases that you create inside the account will be listed in alphabetical order inside the MySQL Databases section of the CP and all it will take to access any of them shall be to click on the tiny phpMyAdmin icon, that'll be on the right side of every database. You won't have to type in any info, since you will be logged in automatically in a new Internet browser tab. If you would like to sign in by hand and not using the Control Panel, you'll be able to do this using our direct phpMyAdmin login page in which you'll have to enter the database username and password. This option is useful if you want to grant access to a specific database to some third party, for instance a web designer.
