phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool coded in PHP, which shall give you 100 % control over a MySQL database. You could do absolutely everything - set up fields, rows and tables, erase them or change their data, export or import an entire database or just a particular part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is necessary if you need to switch web hosting companies, because you can conveniently create a full backup of a database in different formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You will end up with just one file containing the entire content of the database, so you could download it from the current provider, upload it to the web server of the new one and import it using the same tool on their end. Your internet site will look exactly the same, because all script applications store their data within a database. With phpMyAdmin you may also quickly search and replace content material of your choosing across the whole web site - a word, an expression or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Web Hosting
phpMyAdmin is featured as an element of our Linux web hosting and you shall be able to access it anytime from your Hepsia CP. All databases that you create in the account shall be listed in alphabetical order inside the MySQL Databases section of the Control Panel and all it will take to gain access to any of them will be to click on the tiny phpMyAdmin icon, that will be on the right side of every database. You'll not have to enter any information, as you will be logged in automatically in a new web browser tab. If you'd like to log in by hand instead of going through the CP, you'll be able to do so through our direct phpMyAdmin login page where you will have to enter the database account information. This option is handy if you need to grant access to a certain database to a third party, for instance a web designer.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
When 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 in your account from the Hepsia hosting CP. A new tab will open inside your browser as soon as you click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a particular database and you will be logged into the state-of-the-art tool automatically, so you'll not have to type the database username or password. If you want to give access to another person such as a web designer, for instance, you could give them the database login information and they shall be able to log in from a direct link to phpMyAdmin, so they shall never need access to your entire hosting account. This option will allow you to keep your files and emails safe at all times.
