What's phpMyAdmin? What is its purpose? Why will your sites need it?
phpMyAdmin is a sophisticated tool that will allow you to control MySQL databases. It is developed in PHP and provides an easy to work with web interface to: create, delete or change database cells, rows and entire tables. Less experienced users could take advantage of the software tool to import or export a database with a couple of mouse clicks in numerous formats - PDF, SQL, CSV and XML, and that's the fastest and the easiest way to migrate a script-driven site from one website hosting provider to another, as almost all of the content of this sort of an Internet site is saved in a database, not in static files. More experienced users can access a variety of advanced functions including running MySQL statements or managing the privileges of database users. phpMyAdmin is amongst the most popular MySQL management systems around.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Website Hosting
phpMyAdmin is a part of each Linux shared website hosting service
we offer and it's accessible from our custom Hepsia Control Panel. A little phpMyAdmin icon shall be displayed on the right side of each database you set up in the MySQL Databases section of the Control Panel and by clicking on the icon for the database you want to access, you will be logged into the application automatically in a new tab of your browser. Then you can do everything you would like - export the entire or part of the data, 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 through a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you must know the database account information. The last function is beneficial if you have to provide access to a database to a third-party.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your script-driven Internet site inside a semi-dedicated server
account from our company, you'll be able to control the site database manually without any difficulty because you can log in to phpMyAdmin directly from your hosting Control Panel. Any MySQL database you set up shall be listed in the Databases section of your account and it'll have a phpMyAdmin icon on its right side. Accessing the tool for a particular database is as easy as clicking on that icon and our system will open a new tab inside your web browser and it'll log you in automatically, to enable you to export/import or modify any content that you would like. We also offer the option to sign in directly to phpMyAdmin without employing your CP. In cases like this, the login is manual and requires a username and a password. This function allows you to provide access to a certain database to other individuals without giving them access to your web hosting account.
