What is phpMyAdmin? What is its purpose? Why will your web sites require it?
phpMyAdmin is a sophisticated tool which will permit you to control MySQL databases. It's developed in PHP and provides you with an easy-to-use web interface to: create, delete or modify database cells, rows and entire tables. Less experienced users can employ the software tool to import or export a database with several mouse clicks in numerous formats - PDF, SQL, CSV and XML, and that's the fastest and the simplest way to transfer a script-driven site from one hosting company to another, as most of the data of this type of a site is kept in a database, not in static files. More experienced users can access quite a few advanced features such as running MySQL statements or handling the privileges of database users. phpMyAdmin is one of the most popular MySQL management systems around.
phpMyAdmin in Cloud Web Hosting
phpMyAdmin is part of every Linux cloud web hosting
we offer and it's accessible via our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel. A small phpMyAdmin icon will be displayed on the right side of each database which you set up inside the MySQL Databases section of the CP and by clicking on the icon for the database that you want to access, you shall be logged into the application immediately in a new tab of your web browser. Then you can do everything you would like - export the whole or part of the data, import a database, run SQL queries, search and replace terms. If you don't want to use the CP, you will also be able to log in using a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you need to know the database username and password. The last feature is beneficial if you have to give access to a database to a third-party.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server
plan through our company, you will be able to access phpMyAdmin to manage any MySQL database which you set up inside your account from the Hepsia hosting CP. A new tab shall open inside your web browser whenever you click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a specific database and you will be logged into the state-of-the-art tool automatically, so you will not have to type the database username or password. If you would like to grant access to another person such as a web developer, for example, you could give them the database login details and they will be able to log in via a direct link to phpMyAdmin, so they'll never need access to your whole web hosting account. This option will allow you to keep your files and emails safe at all times.
