phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool coded in PHP, which shall offer you total control of a MySQL database. You may do absolutely anything - set up fields, rows and tables, erase them or modify their content, export or import an entire database or only a particular part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is necessary if you would like to switch web hosting providers, because you can effortlessly create a full backup of a database in a variety of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You'll end up with just one file that contains the entire content of the database, so you can download it from the present provider, upload it to the server of the new one and import it using the same tool on their end. Your website will look exactly the same, due to the fact that all script applications store their content inside a database. With phpMyAdmin you may also quickly search and replace content material of your preference across the entire website - a word, a phrase or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Web Hosting
phpMyAdmin is a part of each shared web hosting which we offer and it's accessible through our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel. A small phpMyAdmin icon will be shown on the right side of each database you create inside the MySQL Databases section of the CP and by clicking on the icon for the database which you want to access, you'll be logged into the app immediately in a new tab of your Internet browser. Then you can do everything you would like - export the entire or a part of the content, import a database, run SQL queries, search and replace terms. If you do not want to go through the CP, you shall also be able to log in using a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you need to know the database account information. The last function is handy if you have to provide access to a database to a third-party.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
phpMyAdmin is amongst the tools which come with all our semi-dedicated servers. You may log into it and manage your MySQL databases if you click on the phpMyAdmin icon on the right side of each database which you have created through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. You'll not need to do anything else, since our system shall log you in automatically and you can proceed with the tasks you have to do - import a database file from another website hosting company, modify some content, etc. You can easily access a database by using the direct phpMyAdmin login page as well, but in cases like this you will need to input the correct details. You can use this option if you hire a web developer, as they can work on your site without accessing your hosting CP. In this way, all files and email messages that you have in the account will be protected.
