phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, which will offer you full control of a MySQL database. You may do literally anything - create fields, rows and tables, erase them or alter their data, export or import a whole database or only a certain part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is vital if you would like to switch hosting providers, simply because you can very easily create a full backup of a database in different formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You will end up with one file that contains the whole content of the database, so you could download it from the present provider, upload it to the server of the new one and import it using the same tool on their end. Your internet site shall look exactly the same, simply because all script apps store their content within a database. With phpMyAdmin you could also easily search and replace content material of your choosing across the whole internet site - a word, a phrase or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Website Hosting
phpMyAdmin is a part of each and every Linux website hosting package that we offer and it is accessible from our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel. A tiny phpMyAdmin icon will be shown on the right side of any database you create in the MySQL Databases section of the Control Panel and by clicking on the icon for the database which you want to access, you'll be logged into the application instantly in a new tab of your web browser. Then you can do anything you would like - export the whole or a part of the content, import a database, run SQL queries, search and replace terms. If you don't want to employ the CP, you will also be able to log in through a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you need to know the database username and password. The last feature is beneficial if you have to provide access to a database to a third-party.
