Learn what phpMyAdmin is, just what it’s used for and the reason why you will need it for your sites.
phpMyAdmin is an efficient PHP-based tool employed to handle MySQL databases using a web interface. You can employ it to run MySQL commands, set up, change and remove cells, rows and tables or control users with different levels of access to the database in question. All these tasks may be completed from any device given that you have an Internet browser and access to the hosting account where the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you can also export or import an entire database, which is an extremely helpful feature if you want to migrate an Internet site from one hosting provider to another. A variety of file formats are supported for the so-called dump file - CSV, SQL, XML and PDF, depending on what you'd like to do - move the data from one hosting account to another, preview a whole database in a spreadsheet app for instance Microsoft Excel, and so forth.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Hosting
phpMyAdmin is available as an element of our shared plans
and you will be able to access it anytime from your Hepsia CP. All databases you create in the account shall be listed in alphabetical order in the MySQL Databases section of the CP and all it shall take to access any of them will be to click on the small phpMyAdmin icon, which will be on the right side of each database. You'll not have to enter any information, as you will be logged in automatically in a new web browser tab. If you'd like to sign in manually and not using the CP, you shall be able to do this using our direct phpMyAdmin login page in which you'll have to enter the database account information. This option is handy if you want to offer access to a particular database to some third party, for instance a web designer.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
phpMyAdmin is one of the software tools that come with all our semi-dedicated plans
. You could log into it and handle all of your MySQL databases if you click on the phpMyAdmin icon on the right side of each database which you have created through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. You'll not need to do anything else, as our system shall log you in automatically and you can easily proceed with the tasks you should do - import a database file from another web hosting company, modify some content, etcetera. You can access a database by using the direct phpMyAdmin login page as well, but in such a case you will need to type in the correct username and password. You can use this option if you hire a website designer, as they can work on your site without accessing your hosting Control Panel. In this way, all files and email messages that you have in the account shall be protected.
