Learn what phpMyAdmin is, exactly what it’s utilized for and the reasons why you will be needing it for your sites.
phpMyAdmin is a highly efficient PHP-based software tool used to control MySQL databases through a web interface. You may employ it to run MySQL commands, create, modify and remove cells, rows and tables or handle users with separate levels of access to the database in question. These tasks can be performed from any device as long as you have an Internet browser and access to the Internet hosting account in which the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you could also export or import a whole database, which is an extremely helpful function if you want to migrate a web site from one web hosting provider to another. A variety of file formats are supported for the so-called dump file - CSV, SQL, XML and PDF, based upon what you want to do - move the data from one hosting account to another, preview an entire database in a spreadsheet app for example Microsoft Excel, etc.
phpMyAdmin in Web Hosting
You shall be able to use phpMyAdmin to access any database which you set up inside a web hosting
account purchased through our company since we supply the tool by default with all our hosting plans. After you log in to your Hepsia hosting CP and set up a new database inside the MySQL Databases section, a small phpMyAdmin icon shall appear on its right-hand side. What is needed to log in instantly is to click on this icon and the tool shall open in a new Internet browser tab, so that you can manage the database content. That is also how you could import a database if you're moving your site from another host company to our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform. A different way to log in to a database is if you take advantage of our direct phpMyAdmin login URL, but you must know the DB account information. This option will permit you to grant access to any database to other people, without providing them with access to the entire Internet hosting account.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server
plan from our company, you will be able to access phpMyAdmin to control any MySQL database which you set up in your account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. A new tab will open in your web browser the moment you click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a specific database and you will be logged into the state-of-the-art tool automatically, so you'll not have to enter the database username or password. If you would like to provide access to another person such as a web designer, for instance, you could give them the database login information and they'll be able to log in by using a direct link to phpMyAdmin, so they will never need access to your whole hosting account. This option will allow you to keep your files and emails safe at all times.
