What is phpMyAdmin? What is its function? Why will your web sites require it?
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool coded in PHP, which shall offer you complete control of a MySQL database. You can do literally everything - create fields, rows and tables, delete them or alter their content, export or import a whole database or just a certain part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is very important when you would like to switch web hosting companies, simply because you can very easily generate a full backup of a database in several formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You'll end up with just one file which contains the entire content of the database, so you could download it from the present provider, upload it to the server of the new one and import it through the same tool on their end. Your website will look exactly the same, simply because all script applications store their content within a database. With phpMyAdmin you can also effortlessly search and replace content of your choice across the whole web site - a word, an expression or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Hosting
You'll be able to use phpMyAdmin to access any database which you set up in a hosting account acquired through our company simply because we provide the tool by default with all our plans. After you sign in to your Hepsia web hosting CP and create a new database inside the MySQL Databases section, a tiny phpMyAdmin icon will appear on its right-hand side. All it takes to log in instantly is to click on this icon and the tool shall open inside a new Internet browser tab, so that you can manage the database content. That is also how you can import a database if you are moving your website from another service provider to our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. An alternative way to log in to a database is if you take advantage of our direct phpMyAdmin login URL, but you have to know the DB account information. This option will enable you to provide access to any database to other individuals, without providing them with access to the entire hosting account.
