Learn more about what phpMyAdmin is and the way to use it as a management tool for all of your MySQL databases.
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool developed in PHP, which will give you full control over a MySQL database. You could do practically anything - create fields, rows and tables, remove them or modify their content, export or import an entire database or only a certain part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is essential in case you would like to switch web hosting companies, as you can easily create a full backup of a database in different formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You shall end up with just one file containing the entire content of the database, so you could download it from the present provider, upload it to the hosting server of the new one and import it using the same tool on their end. Your site shall look exactly the same, because all script apps store their data within a database. With phpMyAdmin you could also effortlessly search and replace content material of your choosing across the entire internet site - a word, a phrase or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Cloud Website Hosting
phpMyAdmin is a part of each Linux cloud website hosting package we offer and it is accessible via our custom Hepsia CP. A small phpMyAdmin icon shall be displayed on the right side of every database you set up in the MySQL Databases section of the CP and by clicking on the icon for the database that you want to access, you shall be logged into the application instantly in a new tab of your Internet browser. Then you can do everything you'd 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 go through the CP, you'll also be able to sign in via a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you ought to know the database username and password. The last feature is handy if you have to grant access to a database to a third-party.
