Find out what phpMyAdmin is, precisely what it’s employed for and the reason why you will need it for your websites.
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool coded in PHP, that will offer you complete control over a MySQL database. You could do practically anything - set up fields, rows and tables, erase them or change their data, export or import an entire database or just a certain part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is vital in case you need to switch web hosting companies, because you may easily generate a full backup of a database in several formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You'll end up with one file that contains the entire content of the database, so you may download it from the current provider, upload it to the server of the new one and import it using the same tool on their end. Your site shall look exactly the same, for the reason that all script applications store their data within a database. With phpMyAdmin you may also effortlessly search and replace content of your preference across the entire website - a word, a phrase or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Cloud Hosting
You'll be able to employ phpMyAdmin to access any database that you set up inside a cloud hosting account purchased from our company since we provide the tool by default with all of our plans. Once you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and set up a new database in the MySQL Databases section, a little phpMyAdmin icon will appear on its right-hand side. What is needed to log in immediately is to click on that icon and the tool will open in a new web browser tab, so that you can handle the database data. That is also how you can import a database when you are moving your Internet site from another provider to our advanced cloud hosting platform. A different way to log in to a database is if you use our direct phpMyAdmin login URL, but you have to know the DB account info. This option will enable you to give access to any database to other individuals, without providing them with access to the whole Internet hosting account.
