What's phpMyAdmin? What is its purpose? Why will your websites require it?
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool coded in PHP, that will give you 100 % control over a MySQL database. You may do literally anything - set up fields, rows and tables, remove them or modify their data, export or import an entire database or just a certain part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is necessary when you want to switch web hosting providers, due to the fact that you can very easily generate a full backup of a database in a number of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You will end up with only one file which contains 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 through the same tool on their end. Your website shall look exactly the same, for the reason that all script apps store their content within a database. With phpMyAdmin you may also conveniently search and replace content material of your preference across the entire website - a word, a phrase or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Hosting
You shall be able to use phpMyAdmin to access any database that you create inside a hosting
account bought from our company since we offer the tool by default with all of our hosting plans. Once you log in to your Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel and create a new database in the MySQL Databases section, a small phpMyAdmin icon shall appear on its right-hand side. What is needed to log in automatically is to click on this icon and the tool shall open inside a new Internet browser tab, so that you can control the database data. This is also how you could import a database when you are moving your web site from another company to our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform. An alternative way to log in to a database is if you take advantage of our direct phpMyAdmin login URL, but you have to know the DB account information. This option will allow you to provide access to any database to other people, without providing them with access to the entire website hosting account.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server
plan through our company, you shall be able to access phpMyAdmin to control any MySQL database you create inside your account through the Hepsia hosting CP. A new tab shall open inside your Internet browser the moment you click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a particular database and you will be logged into the advanced tool automatically, so you'll not need to enter the database username or password. If you would like to provide access to another person like a web developer, for example, you could give them the database login credentials and they will be able to log in via a direct link to phpMyAdmin, so they will never need access to your entire web hosting account. This option will allow you to keep your files and emails safe at all times.
