What's phpMyAdmin? What is its purpose? Why will your websites require it?
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool coded in PHP, that will present you with complete control over a MySQL database. You could do literally anything - create fields, rows and tables, remove them or change their content, export or import a whole database or just a particular part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is necessary if you would like to switch hosting providers, because you can very easily create a full backup of a database in a number of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You will end up with just one 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 via the same tool on their end. Your internet site will look exactly the same, simply because all script apps store their content inside a database. With phpMyAdmin you can also conveniently search and replace information of your choosing across the entire website - a word, an expression or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Web Hosting
We provide phpMyAdmin with all Linux web hosting packages
and you will be able to access it through the MySQL Databases section of your Hepsia CP. In case you are signed into your web hosting account, you should click on the phpMyAdmin icon, that will be on the right-hand side of every database you have set up, and you shall be logged in instantly. As an alternative, you could also access a database directly by visiting our phpMyAdmin login page and typing in the corresponding username and password. You will have the same level of access in either case and you will be able to complete all operations which the tool supports, to enable you to effortlessly import, export or change each of your databases. The direct link may be quite useful in case a third person, like a web designer, requires access to a particular database and you don't want to give them full access to the Internet hosting account.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
phpMyAdmin is one of the software instruments which come with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
. 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 every database you have created via your Hepsia Internet hosting CP. You shall not have to do anything else, as our system will log you in automatically and you could proceed with the tasks you have to do - import a database file from another provider, change some content, and so forth. You can easily access a database by using the direct phpMyAdmin login page also, but in this case you'll have to type in the correct details. You could use this option if you hire a web designer, as they can work on your Internet site without accessing your website hosting CP. Thus, all files and e-mails you have in the account will be safe.
