What is phpMyAdmin? What is its function? Why will your web sites need it?
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool developed in PHP, which shall provide you with total control over a MySQL database. You may do virtually anything - set up fields, rows and tables, erase them or modify their data, export or import an entire database or only a certain part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is irreplaceable when you want to switch hosting companies, because you may conveniently generate a full backup of a database in several formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You shall end up with only one file which contains the whole content of the database, so you could download it from the current provider, upload it to the hosting server of the new one and import it via the same tool on their end. Your internet site will look exactly the same, simply because all script applications store their data in a database. With phpMyAdmin you can also quickly search and replace information of your choice across the entire website - a word, an expression or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Website Hosting
phpMyAdmin is provided as a part of our Linux website hosting
and you will be able to access it at any time via your Hepsia CP. All databases that you create in the account will be listed in alphabetical order inside the MySQL Databases section of the CP and all it will take to log in to any of them will be to click on the tiny phpMyAdmin icon, that will be on the right side of each database. You won't need to enter any info, as you will be logged in automatically in a new browser tab. If you'd like to sign in manually and not using the Control Panel, you shall be able to do that using our direct phpMyAdmin login page in which you'll have to enter the database username and password. This option is helpful if you want to grant access to a certain database to some third party, for instance a web designer.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server
plan through our company, you'll be able to access phpMyAdmin to control any MySQL database that you create in your account from the Hepsia hosting CP. A new tab will open within your browser the moment you click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a specific database and you will be logged into the advanced tool automatically, so you'll not have to input the database username or password. If you would like to grant access to another person such as a website designer, for instance, you can give them the database login info and they shall be able to log in using a direct link to phpMyAdmin, so they'll never need access to your entire web hosting account. This option will allow you to keep your files and emails safe at all times.
