Find out what phpMyAdmin is, exactly what it’s employed for and why you will need it for your sites.
phpMyAdmin is an efficient PHP-based software tool which is used to handle MySQL databases via a web interface. You could use it to run MySQL commands, create, change and erase cells, rows and tables or manage users with different levels of access to the database in question. Every one of these tasks can easily be completed from any device given that you have a web browser and access to the web hosting account where the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you can also export or import an entire database, which is an extremely helpful function if you'd like to migrate a website 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'd like to do - move the content from one internet hosting account to another, preview an entire database in a spreadsheet app like Microsoft Excel, etc.
phpMyAdmin in Cloud Web Hosting
You shall be able to employ phpMyAdmin to access any database that you set up in a cloud web hosting account purchased from our company since we offer the tool by default with all our plans. When you sign in to your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and set up a new database in the MySQL Databases section, a little phpMyAdmin icon shall appear on its right-hand side. All it takes to log in instantly is to click on that icon and the tool shall open in a new browser tab, so you can control the database content. That's also the way to import a database when you are moving your site from another service provider to our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. The other 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 enable you to provide access to any database to other people, without providing them with access to the whole web hosting account.
