phpMyAdmin is a powerful PHP-based software tool used to control MySQL databases using a web interface. You could use it to run MySQL commands, create, edit and erase cells, rows and tables or control users with different levels of access to the database in question. Each one of these tasks may be completed from any device as long as you have a web browser and access to the web hosting account where the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you could also export or import a whole database, which is a very useful function if you need to migrate an Internet site from one hosting provider to another. A number of different file formats are supported for the so-called dump file - CSV, SQL, XML and PDF, depending on what you want to do - move the content from one hosting account to another, preview a whole database in a spreadsheet app such as Microsoft Excel, and so on.
phpMyAdmin in Website Hosting
You shall be able to employ phpMyAdmin to access any database which you create inside a website hosting account purchased from our company as we provide the tool by default with all our hosting plans. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and set up a new database in the MySQL Databases section, a little phpMyAdmin icon shall appear on its right-hand side. What it requires to log in automatically is to click on this icon and the tool shall open in a new browser tab, so that you can handle the database content. This is also the way to import a database when you are moving your web site from another provider 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 information. This option will enable you to grant access to any database to other individuals, without providing them with access to the whole web hosting account.
