phpMyAdmin is a powerful PHP-based tool employed to handle MySQL databases through a web interface. You could employ it to run MySQL commands, set up, modify and erase cells, rows and tables or manage users with various levels of access to the database in question. All these tasks may be performed from any device provided that you have a web browser and access to the Internet hosting account where the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you may also export or import an entire database, which is a very beneficial function if you would like to migrate an Internet site from one web hosting provider to another. Many different file formats are supported for the so-called dump file - CSV, SQL, XML and PDF, depending on what you need to do - move the data from one hosting account to another, preview a whole database in a spreadsheet app for example Microsoft Excel, and so forth.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Website Hosting
phpMyAdmin is a part of each and every Linux shared website hosting package that we offer and it is accessible through our custom-built Hepsia CP. A small phpMyAdmin icon shall be shown on the right side of any database which you create inside the MySQL Databases section of the Control Panel and by clicking on the icon for the database that you want to access, you'll be logged into the app immediately in a new tab of your web browser. Then you can do everything you'd like - export the entire or a part of the data, import a database, run SQL queries, search and replace terms. If you don't want to employ the Control Panel, you'll also be able to log in through a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you need to know the database account information. The last function is handy if you have to grant access to a database to a third-party.
