What is phpMyAdmin? What is its purpose? Why will your web sites require it?
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool coded in PHP, which will give you complete control of a MySQL database. You may do absolutely anything - set up fields, rows and tables, delete them or modify their data, export or import a whole database or only a specific part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is necessary in case you need to switch hosting providers, due to the fact that you can effortlessly generate a full backup of a database in several formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You shall end up with a single file which contains the entire content of the database, so you can download it from the current provider, upload it to the hosting server of the new one and import it using the same tool on their end. Your internet site shall look exactly the same, due to the fact that all script apps store their data inside a database. With phpMyAdmin you may also easily search and replace content of your choosing across the entire website - a word, a phrase or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Cloud Hosting
You shall be able to employ phpMyAdmin to access any database that you set up inside a cloud hosting account acquired through our company because we supply the tool by default with all of our hosting plans. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia web hosting CP and create a new database in the MySQL Databases section, a small phpMyAdmin icon shall appear on its right-hand side. All it takes to log in immediately is to click on that icon and the tool shall open in a new web browser tab, so that you can manage the database content. That's also the way to import a database if you're moving your web site from another host company to our advanced cloud hosting platform. An alternative way to log in to a database is if you use our direct phpMyAdmin login URL, but you must know the DB account info. This option will permit you to grant access to any database to other people, without giving them access to the entire hosting account.
