Learn what phpMyAdmin is, what it’s useful for and the reason why you will need it for your websites.
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool coded in PHP, which shall give you 100 % control over a MySQL database. You can do absolutely everything - set up fields, rows and tables, remove 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 essential if you need to switch web hosting companies, due to the fact that you could conveniently generate a full backup of a database in several formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You will end up with one file that contains the entire content of the database, so you may 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 site shall look exactly the same, for the reason that all script apps store their data within a database. With phpMyAdmin you can also effortlessly search and replace content material of your choosing across the whole website - a word, a phrase or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Website Hosting
You will be able to employ phpMyAdmin to access any database that you set up inside a website hosting
account purchased from our company since we offer the tool by default with all plans. Once you log in to your Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel and set up a new database inside the MySQL Databases section, a small phpMyAdmin icon will appear on its right-hand side. What it requires to log in instantly is to click on this icon and the tool will open in a new Internet browser tab, so that you can handle the database data. This is also how you could import a database if you're moving your website from another company to our state-of-the-art 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 should know the DB account info. This option will allow you to provide access to any database to other people, without giving them access to the entire web hosting account.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your script-driven Internet site inside a semi-dedicated server
account from our company, you'll be able to control the website database manually effortlessly because you can sign in to phpMyAdmin directly from your hosting CP. Any MySQL database that you create will be listed inside the Databases section of your account and it will have a phpMyAdmin icon on its right side. Accessing the tool for a particular database is as easy as clicking on that icon and our system shall open a new tab in your web browser and it'll log you in automatically, so you can export/import or modify any content that you would like. We also provide the option to sign in directly to phpMyAdmin without employing your CP. In cases like this, the login is manual and requires a username and a password. This function will enable you to provide access to a certain database to other people without giving them access to your hosting account.
