What is phpMyAdmin? What is its purpose? Why will your web sites require it?
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, which shall give you 100 % control of a MySQL database. You may do literally anything - set up fields, rows and tables, remove them or alter their content, export or import an entire database or just a certain part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is very important if you need to switch web hosting providers, as you may very easily generate a full backup of a database in a number of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You'll end up with a single file which contains the whole content of the database, so you could download it from the current provider, upload it to the server of the new one and import it through the same tool on their end. Your site will look exactly the same, simply because all script applications store their content within a database. With phpMyAdmin you could also easily search and replace content of your choice across the whole website - a word, an expression or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Website Hosting
phpMyAdmin is featured as part of our Linux shared website hosting plans
and you will be able to access it whenever you want through your Hepsia Control Panel. All databases you create in the account will be listed in alphabetical order in the MySQL Databases section of the Control Panel and all it shall take to log in to any of them shall be to click on the tiny phpMyAdmin icon, that'll be on the right side of each database. You'll not need to input any info, as you will be logged in automatically in a new browser tab. If you'd like to log in by hand rather than using the Control Panel, you shall be able to do so through our direct phpMyAdmin login page where you'll have to input the database username and password. This option is helpful if you need to offer access to a particular database to a third party, for example a web designer.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
phpMyAdmin is amongst the software instruments which come with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans
. You can log into it and control any of your MySQL databases if you click on the phpMyAdmin icon located on the right side of each and every database which you have created via your Hepsia website hosting CP. You won't have to do anything else, as our system will log you in automatically and you could proceed with the tasks you should do - import a database file from another website hosting company, modify some content, and so on. You may access a database by using the direct phpMyAdmin login page as well, but in this case you'll have to enter the correct account information. You can use this option if you hire a website designer, as they can work on your Internet site without accessing your web hosting Control Panel. Thus, all files and email messages you have in the account shall be safe.
