Discover what phpMyAdmin is, precisely what it’s useful for and the reason why you will need it for your web sites.
phpMyAdmin is an efficient PHP-based software tool used to manage MySQL databases using a web interface. You can use it to run MySQL commands, create, change and erase cells, rows and tables or manage users with separate levels of access to the database in question. All these tasks could be done from any device provided that you have a web browser and access to the web hosting account in which the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you may also export or import an entire database, which is a very beneficial function if you need to migrate a web site from one web hosting company to another. Many different 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 internet hosting account to another, preview a whole database in a spreadsheet application for example Microsoft Excel, and so on.
phpMyAdmin in Web Hosting
You shall be able to employ phpMyAdmin to access any database which you create in a web hosting
account acquired through our company because we provide the tool by default with all our hosting plans. After you sign in to your Hepsia website hosting CP and set up a new database inside the MySQL Databases section, a small phpMyAdmin icon will appear on its right-hand side. What it takes to log in automatically is to click on this icon and the tool shall open inside a new browser tab, so you can manage the database content. That is also how you can import a database if you are moving your site from another provider to our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform. The other way to log in to a database is if you use our direct phpMyAdmin login URL, but you need to know the DB username and password. This option will enable you to provide access to any database to other individuals, without granting them access to the whole website hosting account.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
We offer phpMyAdmin with every single semi-dedicated server
account as our packages support MySQL-driven websites. The tool is integrated in our in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and if you'd like to modify any database, you just need to go to the MySQL section and click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a given database. You'll not need any login credentials since you shall be logged in automatically. If you do not want to employ your CP or you need to grant access to any database to another person for some reason, you'll have an alternative option - to go to our phpMyAdmin direct login webpage where our system shall require the database account information. If you hire a website design company, for instance, you can employ this option to enable them to work on your site without giving them access to any files, e-mails or other databases in the account.
