What is phpMyAdmin? What is its function? Why will your web sites require it?
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool coded in PHP, which shall provide you with 100 % control of a MySQL database. You could do absolutely anything - set up fields, rows and tables, erase them or modify their data, export or import an entire database or only a particular part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is very important if you want to switch web hosting companies, since you may conveniently generate a full backup of a database in a number of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You shall end up with one file which contains the whole content of the database, so you could download it from the current provider, upload it to the server of the new one and import it through the same tool on their end. Your internet site will look exactly the same, due to the fact that all script applications store their content in a database. With phpMyAdmin you may also quickly search and replace content of your choice across the whole website - a word, an expression or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Cloud Hosting
phpMyAdmin is part of every Linux cloud hosting
that we offer and it's accessible through our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel. A small phpMyAdmin icon will be displayed on the right side of any database which you create in the MySQL Databases section of the Control Panel and by clicking on the icon for the database you want to access, you'll be logged into the application instantly in a new tab of your browser. Then you can do everything you'd like - export the entire or a part of the data, import a database, run SQL queries, search and change terms. If you don't want to employ the Control Panel, you'll also be able to sign in using a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you need to know the database username and password. The last feature is beneficial if you have to give access to a database to a third-party.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server
package through our company, you will be able to access phpMyAdmin to handle any MySQL database you set up inside your account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. A new tab will open in your web browser the instant you click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a particular database and you will be logged into the advanced tool automatically, so you'll not need to input the database username or password. If you would like to grant access to another person like a website designer, for example, you can give them the database login information and they shall be able to log in through a direct link to phpMyAdmin, so they'll never need access to your whole web hosting account. This option will allow you to keep your files and emails safe at all times.
