What's phpMyAdmin? What is its role? Why will your websites require it?
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, which shall offer you total control of a MySQL database. You can do practically anything - set up fields, rows and tables, remove them or alter their data, export or import an entire database or just a particular part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is vital when you would like to switch hosting providers, because you can very easily generate a full backup of a database in different formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You'll end up with just one file that contains the entire content of the database, so you could 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, simply because all script apps store their content inside a database. With phpMyAdmin you can also easily search and replace information of your preference across the whole internet site - a word, an expression or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Cloud Web Hosting
You'll be able to use phpMyAdmin to access any database that you set up inside a cloud web hosting account purchased from our company simply because we provide the tool by default with all our plans. After you log in to your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and set up a new database in the MySQL Databases section, a tiny phpMyAdmin icon will appear on its right-hand side. What is needed to log in automatically is to click on that icon and the tool shall open inside a new web browser tab, so you can handle the database content. That's also how you could import a database in case you are moving your Internet site from another provider to our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. A different way to log in to a database is if you take advantage of our direct phpMyAdmin login URL, but you need to know the DB account info. This option will allow you to provide access to any database to other individuals, without giving them access to the entire web hosting account.
