What's phpMyAdmin? What is its function? Why will your Internet sites need it?
phpMyAdmin is an efficient PHP-based tool which is used to handle MySQL databases through a web interface. You can employ it to run MySQL commands, set up, edit and erase cells, rows and tables or handle users with various levels of access to the database in question. All these tasks may be completed from any device given that you have an Internet browser and access to the hosting account in which the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you could also export or import an entire database, which is a very helpful function if you want to migrate a web site from one web hosting provider to another. A variety of file formats are supported for the so-called dump file - CSV, SQL, XML and PDF, depending on what you'd like to do - move the content from one internet hosting account to another, preview a whole database in a spreadsheet application like Microsoft Excel, and so on.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Website Hosting
phpMyAdmin is a part of every Linux shared website hosting package
we provide and it is accessible via our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel. A tiny phpMyAdmin icon will be displayed on the right side of every database you set up inside the MySQL Databases section of the CP and by clicking on the icon for the database you want to access, you shall be logged into the application instantly in a new tab of your Internet browser. Then you can do anything 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 go through the Control Panel, you shall also be able to log in via a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you must know the database username and password. The last function is handy if you have to grant access to a database to a third-party.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server
package from our company, you will be able to access phpMyAdmin to manage any MySQL database that you set up inside your account through the Hepsia hosting CP. A new tab will open in your browser whenever you click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a specific 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 grant access to another person such as a web developer, for instance, you could give them the database login info and they shall be able to log in by using a direct link to phpMyAdmin, so they'll never need access to your whole web hosting account. This option will allow you to keep your files and emails safe at all times.
