Find out what phpMyAdmin is, just what it’s useful for and why you will need it for your web sites.
phpMyAdmin is a highly efficient PHP-based software tool which is used to control MySQL databases via a web interface. You could use it to run MySQL commands, create, edit and erase cells, rows and tables or control users with various levels of access to the database in question. These tasks can be carried out from any device provided that you have a browser and access to the Internet hosting account where the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you could also export or import a whole database, which is a very beneficial function if you would like to migrate an Internet site from one web hosting company to another. Many different file formats are supported for the so-called dump file - CSV, SQL, XML and PDF, dependant upon what you want to do - move the data from one hosting account to another, preview an entire database in a spreadsheet application for example Microsoft Excel, and so on.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Hosting
We provide phpMyAdmin with all our Linux shared service
and you will be able to access it through the MySQL Databases section of your Hepsia CP. If you are signed into your web hosting account, you could click on the phpMyAdmin icon, which will be on the right-hand side of each database you have created, and you shall be signed in automatically. As an alternative, you may also access a database directly by visiting our phpMyAdmin login page and entering the corresponding details. You will have the same exact level of access in both cases and you will be able to complete all operations the tool supports, to enable you to conveniently import, export or modify any of your databases. The direct link could be extremely useful if a third person, like a web designer, needs access to a particular database and you do not want to give them full access to the Internet hosting account.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your script-driven site inside a semi-dedicated server
account from our company, you will be able to manage the website database manually with ease since you can log in to phpMyAdmin straight from your web hosting Control Panel. Any MySQL database you create will be listed inside the Databases section of your account and it'll have a phpMyAdmin icon on its right side. Accessing the tool for a specific database is as basic as clicking on that icon and our system shall open a new tab in your Internet browser and it shall log you in automatically, so you can export/import or change any content that you want. We also provide the option to sign in directly to phpMyAdmin without employing your CP. In such cases, the login is manual and requires a username and a password. This function allows you to grant access to a particular database to other individuals without giving them access to your hosting account.
