What is phpMyAdmin? What is its purpose? Why will your web sites need it?
phpMyAdmin is a highly efficient PHP-based tool which is used to control MySQL databases using a web interface. You could use it to run MySQL commands, set up, modify and delete cells, rows and tables or control users with different levels of access to the database in question. Every single one of these tasks may be performed from any device provided that you have an Internet browser and access to the hosting account in which the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you can also export or import an entire database, which is an extremely helpful function if you want to migrate a web site from one web hosting company to another. Many different file formats are supported for the so-called dump file - CSV, SQL, XML and PDF, based on what you want to do - move the content from one internet hosting account to another, preview a whole database in a spreadsheet application for instance Microsoft Excel, etc.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Web Hosting
We provide phpMyAdmin with all of our Linux shared web hosting and you will be able to access it via the MySQL Databases section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you're signed into your web hosting account, you should click on the phpMyAdmin icon, that'll be on the right-hand side of every database you have created, and you shall be signed in automatically. Alternatively, you could also access a database directly by visiting our phpMyAdmin login page and inputting the corresponding account information. You shall have the same exact level of access in both cases and you will be able to perform all operations that the software tool supports, so you can quickly import, export or modify any of your databases. The direct link may be quite useful in case a third person, such as a web designer, needs access to a given database and you don't want to give them full access to the hosting account.
