phpMyAdmin is an efficient PHP-based tool used to control MySQL databases using a web interface. You can employ it to run MySQL commands, create, edit and remove cells, rows and tables or manage users with different levels of access to the database in question. Every one of these tasks can easily be done from any device provided that you have an Internet browser and access to the Internet hosting account in which the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you can also export or import an entire database, which is a very helpful feature if you need to migrate a web site from one web hosting provider to another. Many different file formats are supported for the so-called dump file - CSV, SQL, XML and PDF, based upon what you'd like to do - move the content from one internet hosting account to another, preview a whole database in a spreadsheet application such as Microsoft Excel, and so forth.
phpMyAdmin in Website Hosting
phpMyAdmin is a part of each Linux website hosting package that we provide and it's accessible from our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. A tiny phpMyAdmin icon will be displayed on the right side of each database that you set up inside the MySQL Databases section of the CP and by clicking on the icon for the database which you want to access, you shall be logged into the app automatically in a new tab of your browser. Then you can do anything you'd like - export the entire or a part of the content, import a database, run SQL queries, search and modify terms. If you don't want to use the CP, you shall also be able to log in through a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you ought to know the database username and password. The last feature is beneficial if you have to provide access to a database to a third-party.
