phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, which will provide you with total control over a MySQL database. You can do absolutely everything - create fields, rows and tables, remove them or change their content, export or import a whole database or only a particular part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is essential in case you need to switch web hosting providers, since you could effortlessly create a full backup of a database in several formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You'll end up with one file containing the whole content of the database, so you can easily 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 apps store their data within a database. With phpMyAdmin you can also quickly search and replace content material of your preference across the whole web site - a word, a phrase or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Website Hosting
phpMyAdmin is part of each Linux website hosting package we provide and it's accessible through our custom Hepsia Control Panel. A small phpMyAdmin icon will be displayed on the right side of any database that you set up in the MySQL Databases section of the CP and by clicking on the icon for the database you want to access, you will be logged into the application instantly in a new tab of your browser. Then you can do anything you'd like - export the whole or a part of the content, import a database, run SQL queries, search and replace terms. If you don't want to go through the Control Panel, you shall also be able to log in using a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you must know the database username and password. The last feature is helpful if you have to provide access to a database to a third-party.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
phpMyAdmin is amongst the software tools which come with all our Linux semi-dedicated packages. You can log into it and handle your MySQL databases if you click on the phpMyAdmin icon on the right side of every database that you have created through your Hepsia hosting CP. You won't need to do anything else, since our system shall log you in automatically and you will be able to proceed with the tasks you need to do - import a database file from another service provider, modify some content, and so on. You can access a database by using the direct phpMyAdmin login page as well, but in such a case you will need to type in the correct account information. You could use this option if you hire a website designer, as they can work on your website without accessing your hosting Control Panel. This way, all files and email messages which you have inside the account shall be secure.
