What's phpMyAdmin? What is its function? Why will your websites need it?
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool developed in PHP, that will offer you total control over a MySQL database. You may do absolutely everything - set up fields, rows and tables, remove them or change their data, export or import an entire database or only a particular part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is necessary in case you want to switch web hosting companies, because you can effortlessly generate a full backup of a database in different formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You will end up with only one file which contains the entire content of the database, so you can easily 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, due to the fact that all script apps store their content inside a database. With phpMyAdmin you can also conveniently search and replace information of your preference across the whole internet site - a word, a phrase or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Cloud Hosting
You'll be able to employ phpMyAdmin to access any database that you set up in a cloud hosting
account bought through our company since we provide the tool by default with all our hosting plans. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia Internet hosting Control Panel and set up a new database inside the MySQL Databases section, a small phpMyAdmin icon will appear on its right-hand side. All it takes to log in instantly is to click on that icon and the tool will open inside a new browser tab, so you can control the database data. That is also how you can import a database in case you are moving your website from another service provider to our innovative cloud hosting platform. An alternative way to log in to a database is if you use our direct phpMyAdmin login URL, but you need to know the DB account info. This option will permit you to provide access to any database to other individuals, without providing them with access to the whole website hosting account.
