phpMyAdmin is a highly efficient PHP-based software tool used to control MySQL databases through a web interface. You could use it to run MySQL commands, create, modify and remove cells, rows and tables or handle users with various levels of access to the database in question. Every one of these tasks may be performed from any device as long as you have a browser and access to the website hosting account where the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you could also export or import an entire database, which is an extremely helpful function if you would like to migrate an Internet site from one 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 need to do - move the data from one hosting account to another, preview an entire database in a spreadsheet application such as Microsoft Excel, and so forth.
phpMyAdmin in Web Hosting
phpMyAdmin is part of each Linux web hosting package which we provide and it is accessible through our custom Hepsia CP. A tiny phpMyAdmin icon shall be displayed on the right side of any database which you create in 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 web browser. Then you can do anything you'd like - export the whole or a part of the content, import a database, run SQL queries, search and modify terms. If you don't want to go through the CP, you shall also be able to sign in via a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you ought to know the database username and password. The last function is beneficial if you have to give access to a database to a third-party.
