Learn what phpMyAdmin is, exactly what it’s useful for and the reason why you will be needing it for your sites.
phpMyAdmin is a highly efficient PHP-based software tool which is used to manage MySQL databases via a web interface. You could use it to run MySQL commands, set up, modify and remove cells, rows and tables or handle users with different levels of access to the database in question. Every single one of these tasks can easily be performed from any device provided that you have an Internet browser and access to the hosting account where the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you could also export or import an entire database, which is a very beneficial function if you would like to migrate an Internet site from one web hosting provider to another. Several different file formats are supported for the so-called dump file - CSV, SQL, XML and PDF, depending on what you would like to do - move the content from one hosting account to another, preview a whole database in a spreadsheet application for instance Microsoft Excel, etc.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Web Hosting
You shall be able to use phpMyAdmin to access any database that you set up inside a shared web hosting
account bought from our company simply because we offer the tool by default with all plans. After you sign in to your Hepsia web hosting CP and set up a new database in the MySQL Databases section, a small phpMyAdmin icon will appear on its right-hand side. What is needed to log in instantly is to click on this icon and the tool shall open inside a new web browser tab, so you can control the database data. That is also the way to import a database in case you are moving your Internet 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 need to know the DB username and password. This option will enable you to give access to any database to other people, without giving them access to the whole website hosting account.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
phpMyAdmin is amongst the tools that come with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting
. You can easily log into it and handle any of your MySQL databases if you click on the phpMyAdmin icon situated on the right side of each database you have created through your Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel. You will not have to do anything else, because our system shall log you in automatically and you can proceed with the tasks you should do - import a database file from another provider, change some content, and so on. You could access a database by using our direct phpMyAdmin login page as well, but in such a case you'll need to enter the correct account information. You may use this option if you hire a website designer, as they can work on your site without accessing your website hosting CP. This way, all files and e-mails that you have inside the account shall be protected.
