phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool coded in PHP, which shall provide you with total control of a MySQL database. You may do absolutely everything - create fields, rows and tables, delete them or modify their content, export or import a whole database or only a particular part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is necessary when you want to switch web hosting providers, simply because you could very easily create a full backup of a database in several formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You will end up with just one file that contains the whole content of the database, so you can download it from the present provider, upload it to the hosting server of the new one and import it through the same tool on their end. Your site will look exactly the same, because all script applications store their data within a database. With phpMyAdmin you could also easily search and replace content material of your choice across the whole website - a word, a phrase or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Website Hosting
We offer phpMyAdmin with all of our Linux website hosting packages and you will be able to access it via the MySQL Databases part of your Hepsia CP. In case you are signed into your hosting account, you can click on the phpMyAdmin icon, that'll be on the right-hand side of every database you've created, and you shall be signed in immediately. However, you can also access a database directly by visiting our phpMyAdmin login page and entering the corresponding username and password. You'll have the same exact level of access in both cases and you will be able to execute all operations which the software tool supports, so you can effortlessly import, export or modify any of your databases. The direct link can be quite useful when a third person, such as a web designer, needs access to a specific database and you don't want to give them complete access to the website hosting account.
