phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, which shall present you with total control of a MySQL database. You may do practically anything - create fields, rows and tables, erase them or alter their content, export or import a whole database or just a specific part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is necessary if you would like to switch hosting companies, since you could effortlessly create a full backup of a database in a variety of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You will end up with only one file containing the whole content of the database, so you can download it from the current provider, upload it to the server of the new one and import it using the same tool on their end. Your site shall look exactly the same, because all script apps store their data inside a database. With phpMyAdmin you could also easily search and replace information of your choosing across the whole internet site - a word, a phrase or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Hosting
phpMyAdmin is a part of every hosting which we offer and it is accessible via our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel. A little phpMyAdmin icon shall be shown on the right side of any database you create inside the MySQL Databases section of the Control Panel and by clicking on the icon for the database you want to access, you will be logged into the application automatically in a new tab of your Internet browser. Then you can do everything you would like - export the entire or a part of the data, import a database, run SQL queries, search and change terms. If you don't want to employ the CP, you will also be able to sign in using a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you need to know the database account information. The last function is beneficial if you have to provide access to a database to a third-party.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
We supply phpMyAdmin with every semi-dedicated server account since all our plans support MySQL-driven Internet sites. The tool is integrated in our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP and if you would like to modify any database, you just need to go to the MySQL section and click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a specific database. You shall not need any login credentials as you'll be signed in automatically. If you don't want to use your Control Panel or you need to give access to any database to another individual for whatever reason, you'll also have an alternative option - to visit our phpMyAdmin direct login web page where our system shall require the database account information. If you hire a web development company, for instance, you can use this particular option to allow them to work on your website without giving them access to any files, emails or other databases in the account.
