Discover what phpMyAdmin is, exactly what it’s utilized for and the reason why you will be needing it for your sites.
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool coded in PHP, which shall offer you complete control of a MySQL database. You may do virtually everything - set up fields, rows and tables, delete them or alter their content, export or import a whole database or only a certain part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is vital when you want to switch hosting companies, as you may effortlessly generate a full backup of a database in different formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You'll end up with just one file containing the whole content of the database, so you can 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 site will look exactly the same, due to the fact that all script apps store their data within a database. With phpMyAdmin you could also easily search and replace information of your preference across the whole internet site - a word, an expression or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Cloud Hosting
You shall be able to use phpMyAdmin to access any database which you create in a cloud hosting
account bought from our company because we provide the tool by default with all our hosting plans. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia web hosting CP and set up a new database in the MySQL Databases section, a small phpMyAdmin icon will appear on its right-hand side. All it takes to log in automatically is to click on that icon and the tool shall open in a new browser tab, so that you can control the database content. That is also the way to import a database if you're moving your website from another host company to our innovative cloud hosting platform. The other way to log in to a database is if you take advantage of our direct phpMyAdmin login URL, but you must know the DB username and password. This option will enable you to provide access to any database to other people, without giving them access to the entire website hosting account.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
phpMyAdmin is amongst the tools which come with our semi-dedicated hosting plans
. You may log into it and handle your MySQL databases if you click on the phpMyAdmin icon located on the right side of every database you have created using your Hepsia website hosting CP. You shall not need to do anything else, since our system shall log you in automatically and you could proceed with the tasks you should do - import a database file from another service provider, change some content, etcetera. You can easily access a database by using the direct phpMyAdmin login page also, but in cases like this you'll need to enter the correct details. You can use this option if you hire a web developer, as they can work on your site without accessing your hosting Control Panel. This way, all files and emails which you have inside the account shall be secure.
