What is phpMyAdmin? What is its purpose? Why will your sites need it?
phpMyAdmin is an efficient PHP-based tool used to manage MySQL databases through a web interface. You could use it to run MySQL commands, set up, edit and remove cells, rows and tables or manage users with separate levels of access to the database in question. All these tasks can be done from any device given that you have an Internet browser and access to the Internet hosting account where the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you may also export or import a whole database, which is an extremely helpful function if you would like to migrate a website from one web hosting company to another. A variety of file formats are supported for the so-called dump file - CSV, SQL, XML and PDF, based upon what you want to do - move the data from one web hosting account to another, preview an entire database in a spreadsheet app for example Microsoft Excel, and so forth.
phpMyAdmin in Hosting
You will be able to use phpMyAdmin to access any database you create in a hosting
account purchased from our company since we supply the tool by default with all plans. Once you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and create a new database inside the MySQL Databases section, a small phpMyAdmin icon shall appear on its right-hand side. What it takes to log in instantly is to click on this icon and the tool will open inside a new browser tab, so that you can manage the database data. That is also the way to import a database when you are moving your web site from another host company to our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. The other way to log in to a database is if you use our direct phpMyAdmin login URL, but you need to know the DB username and password. This option will allow you to provide access to any database to other people, without providing them with access to the entire website hosting account.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We provide phpMyAdmin with each and every semi-dedicated server
account as all our plans support MySQL-driven Internet sites. The tool is included inside our in-house built Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel and if you would like to modify any database, you just have to go to the MySQL section and click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a particular database. You shall not need any login credentials as you shall be signed in automatically. If you do not want to go through your CP or you would like to give access to any database to another person for some reason, you will also have an alternative option - to visit our phpMyAdmin direct login web page where our system shall require the database details. If you hire a web designer, for instance, you can take advantage of this particular option to allow them to work on your Internet site without giving them access to any files, email messages or some other databases in the account.
