What's phpMyAdmin? What is its function? Why will your sites require it?
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, that will give you full control of a MySQL database. You could do absolutely anything - set up fields, rows and tables, erase them or change their content, export or import an entire database or only a specific part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is vital if you would like to switch web hosting providers, simply because you could conveniently create a full backup of a database in several formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You will end up with a single file which contains the entire content of the database, so you could download it from the current provider, upload it to the web server of the new one and import it using the same tool on their end. Your internet site will look exactly the same, for the reason that all script applications store their content inside a database. With phpMyAdmin you can also conveniently search and replace content of your choice across the whole website - a word, an expression or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Cloud Web Hosting
phpMyAdmin is a part of every Linux cloud web hosting plan
which we offer and it's accessible from our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel. A tiny phpMyAdmin icon will be displayed on the right side of any database which you create inside the MySQL Databases section of the Control Panel and by clicking on the icon for the database that you want to access, you'll be logged into the application automatically in a new tab of your browser. Then you can do anything you would like - export the whole or a part of the content, import a database, run SQL queries, search and change terms. If you do not want to employ the CP, you will also be able to log in through a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you ought to know the database account information. The last feature is useful if you have to give access to a database to a third-party.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server
package through our company, you shall be able to access phpMyAdmin to handle any MySQL database that you create inside your account from the Hepsia hosting CP. A new tab will open in your browser the instant you click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a specific database and you'll be logged into the sophisticated tool automatically, so you'll not have to type the database username or password. If you want to provide access to another person like a web developer, for instance, you can give them the database login info and they'll be able to log in from a direct link to phpMyAdmin, so they will never need access to your whole internet hosting account. This option will allow you to keep your files and emails safe at all times.
