phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool coded in PHP, that will present you with 100 % control over a MySQL database. You can do virtually anything - create fields, rows and tables, remove them or change their content, export or import a whole database or only a specific part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is essential if you need to switch hosting companies, because you could very easily create a full backup of a database in a number of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You will end up with one file that 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 internet site will look exactly the same, due to the fact that all script apps store their content within a database. With phpMyAdmin you could also conveniently search and replace content material of your choice across the whole website - a word, a phrase or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Web Hosting
phpMyAdmin is a part of every Linux web hosting that we offer and it is accessible from our custom Hepsia CP. A tiny phpMyAdmin icon will be shown on the right side of each database which you set up inside the MySQL Databases section of the CP and by clicking on the icon for the database you want to access, you'll be logged into the application immediately in a new tab of your Internet browser. Then you can do everything you would like - export the whole or part of the content, import a database, run SQL queries, search and change terms. If you don't want to use the CP, you'll also be able to sign in using a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you ought to know the database username and password. The last function is beneficial if you have to grant access to a database to a third-party.
