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, change and remove cells, rows and tables or control users with various levels of access to the database in question. Every one of these tasks could be performed from any device given that you have an Internet browser and access to the web hosting account where the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you could also export or import an entire database, which is a very beneficial function if you want to migrate a web site from one web hosting company to another. A variety of file formats are supported for the so-called dump file - CSV, SQL, XML and PDF, based on what you'd like to do - move the content from one web hosting account to another, preview a whole database in a spreadsheet app for example Microsoft Excel, etc.
phpMyAdmin in Website Hosting
phpMyAdmin is part of every Linux website hosting which we offer and it is accessible via our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel. A tiny phpMyAdmin icon will be shown on the right side of every database which you create in the MySQL Databases section of the Control Panel and by clicking on the icon for the database that you want to access, you will be logged into the app automatically in a new tab of your browser. Then you can do everything you'd like - export the whole 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 Control Panel, you will also be able to sign in through a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you should know the database username and password. The last function is handy if you have to give access to a database to a third-party.
