Learn more about what phpMyAdmin is and how to use it as a management tool for all of your MySQL databases.
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool developed in PHP, which shall offer you complete control over a MySQL database. You can do virtually everything - set up fields, rows and tables, remove 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 irreplaceable when you would like to switch web hosting providers, because you can very easily create a full backup of a database in several formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You'll end up with only one file which contains the whole content of the database, so you may download it from the present provider, upload it to the server of the new one and import it via the same tool on their end. Your site shall look exactly the same, for the reason that all script applications store their data in a database. With phpMyAdmin you could also easily search and replace content material of your preference across the entire web site - a word, a phrase or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Website Hosting
You'll be able to use phpMyAdmin to access any database you create inside a shared website hosting account purchased from our company since we supply the tool by default with all packages. Once you log in to your Hepsia Internet 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 it requires to log in automatically is to click on this icon and the tool will open inside a new browser tab, so that you can control the database content. That is also how you can import a database in case you are 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 use our direct phpMyAdmin login URL, but you should know the DB username and password. This option will allow you to provide access to any database to other people, without granting them access to the entire hosting account.
