What is phpMyAdmin? What is its role? Why will your Internet sites require it?
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool developed in PHP, that will offer you full control over a MySQL database. You could do absolutely everything - set up fields, rows and tables, erase them or alter their data, export or import an entire database or just a certain part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is irreplaceable in case you would like to switch hosting providers, as you can effortlessly create a full backup of a database in a number of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You'll end up with one file that contains the entire content of the database, so you can download it from the present provider, upload it to the web server of the new one and import it using the same tool on their end. Your website will look exactly the same, because all script apps store their data inside a database. With phpMyAdmin you can also easily search and replace information of your choice across the entire internet site - a word, an expression or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Cloud Hosting
We provide phpMyAdmin with all of our Linux cloud hosting packages
and you shall be able to access it through the MySQL Databases section of your Hepsia CP. In case you are signed into your web hosting account, you can click on the phpMyAdmin icon, that will be on the right-hand side of every database you have set up, and you'll be logged in immediately. However, you can also access a database directly by going to our phpMyAdmin login page and inputting the corresponding account info. You will have the same level of access either way and you will be able to complete all procedures which the software tool supports, so you can conveniently import, export or modify any of your databases. The direct link may be really useful in case a third person, such as a web designer, requires access to a particular database and you do not want to give them complete access to the web hosting account.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
phpMyAdmin is amongst the software tools that come with all our Linux semi-dedicated packages
. You can log into it and manage all of your MySQL databases if you click on the phpMyAdmin icon situated on the right side of each and every database which you have created using your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will not have to do anything else, as our system will log you in automatically and you will be able to proceed with the tasks you want to do - import a database file from another provider, modify some content, etcetera. You may access a database by using the direct phpMyAdmin login page as well, but in such a case you will need to input the correct username and password. You can use this option if you hire a website designer, as they can work on your site without accessing your website hosting CP. This way, all files and email messages that you have in the account shall be safe.
