What's phpMyAdmin? What is its role? Why will your Internet sites require it?
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool developed in PHP, which will offer you full control over a MySQL database. You could do literally everything - create fields, rows and tables, erase them or change their data, export or import a whole database or only a specific part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is essential if you would like to switch web hosting companies, simply because you could conveniently create a full backup of a database in several formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You will end up with a single file that contains the whole content of the database, so you can download it from the present provider, upload it to the web server of the new one and import it through the same tool on their end. Your internet site shall look exactly the same, because all script applications store their data within a database. With phpMyAdmin you could also quickly search and replace information of your choosing across the whole web site - a word, an expression or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Cloud Website Hosting
You shall be able to employ phpMyAdmin to access any database you create inside a cloud website hosting
account purchased through our company because we supply the tool by default with all our packages. After you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and set up a new database in the MySQL Databases section, a small phpMyAdmin icon will appear on its right-hand side. What it requires to log in instantly is to click on this icon and the tool shall open inside a new web browser tab, so you can handle the database data. That's also how you could import a database when you are moving your website from another service provider to our innovative cloud hosting platform. An alternative way to log in to a database is if you use our direct phpMyAdmin login URL, but you have to know the DB username and password. This option will enable you to grant access to any database to other people, without granting them access to the whole web hosting account.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server
package through our company, you'll be able to access phpMyAdmin to control any MySQL database you set up inside your account via the Hepsia hosting CP. A new tab will open in your web browser the instant you click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a particular database and you'll be logged into the sophisticated tool automatically, so you'll not have to type the database username or password. If you would like to grant access to another person such as a website designer, for instance, you could give them the database login information and they shall be able to log in via a direct link to phpMyAdmin, so they shall never need access to your whole internet hosting account. This option will allow you to keep your files and emails safe at all times.
