phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, which will present you with total control of a MySQL database. You could do practically anything - set up fields, rows and tables, delete them or modify their content, export or import an entire database or only a particular part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is necessary when you would like to switch hosting providers, simply because you can very easily generate a full backup of a database in several formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You shall end up with a single file that contains the whole content of the database, so you can easily download it from the present provider, upload it to the server of the new one and import it via the same tool on their end. Your website will look exactly the same, due to the fact that all script applications store their content in a database. With phpMyAdmin you may also quickly search and replace content material of your choosing across the whole website - a word, an expression or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Cloud Website Hosting
phpMyAdmin is part of every single Linux cloud website hosting that we provide and it is accessible from our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel. A small phpMyAdmin icon shall be shown on the right side of any database that you set up inside the MySQL Databases section of the Control Panel and by clicking on the icon for the database which you want to access, you shall be logged into the application automatically in a new tab of your Internet browser. Then you can do everything you would like - export the whole or a part of the content, import a database, run SQL queries, search and change terms. If you do not want to use the Control Panel, you will also be able to sign in via a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you need to know the database username and password. The last function is helpful if you have to give access to a database to a third-party.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your script-driven site inside a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to handle the site database manually without any difficulty because you can log in to phpMyAdmin straight from your web hosting Control Panel. Any MySQL database that you set up will 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 will open a new tab inside your browser and it will log you in automatically, to permit you to export/import or change any content that you'd like. We also offer the option to sign in directly to phpMyAdmin without going through your Control Panel. In this situation, the login is manual and requires a username and a password. This function will enable you to provide access to a certain database to other people without giving them access to your web hosting account.
