phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool coded in PHP, that will give you total control of a MySQL database. You could do absolutely anything - create fields, rows and tables, erase them or change their data, export or import a whole database or only a specific part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is necessary if you would like to switch hosting providers, simply because you may very easily generate a full backup of a database in several formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You shall end up with one file which contains the entire content of the database, so you can easily download it from the current provider, upload it to the web server of the new one and import it via the same tool on their end. Your internet site will look exactly the same, due to the fact that all script apps store their content inside a database. With phpMyAdmin you could also conveniently search and replace content material of your choosing across the whole internet site - a word, a phrase or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Hosting
phpMyAdmin is part of every shared package which we offer and it's accessible from our in-house built Hepsia CP. A little phpMyAdmin icon will be displayed on the right side of any database that you create in the MySQL Databases section of the CP and by clicking on the icon for the database that you want to access, you'll be logged into the application immediately in a new tab of your web browser. Then you can do anything you'd like - export the whole or a part of the data, import a database, run SQL queries, search and replace terms. If you do not want to go through the CP, you'll also be able to sign in via a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you need to know the database username and password. The last feature is useful if you have to grant access to a database to a third-party.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We supply phpMyAdmin with each semi-dedicated server account due to the fact that all our packages support MySQL-driven Internet sites. The tool is integrated inside our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and if you'd like to modify any database, you simply need to go to the MySQL section and click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a given database. You will not need any login credentials since you shall be logged in automatically. If you don't want to employ your CP or you would like to provide access to any database to another person for whatever reason, you shall also have an alternative option - to go to our phpMyAdmin direct login webpage in which our system will require the database username and password. If you hire a web development company, for example, you can use this particular option to permit them to work on your site without granting them access to any files, emails or other databases in the account.
