phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool coded in PHP, which shall present you with total control of a MySQL database. You could do virtually anything - create fields, rows and tables, remove them or modify their content, export or import an entire database or only a particular part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is essential in case you would like to switch web hosting providers, due to the fact that you can very easily generate a full backup of a database in a number of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You will end up with a single file containing the entire content of the database, so you can download it from the current provider, upload it to the hosting server of the new one and import it using the same tool on their end. Your internet site shall look exactly the same, because all script applications store their content in a database. With phpMyAdmin you can also easily search and replace information of your preference across the entire web site - a word, a phrase or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Hosting
phpMyAdmin is a part of each and every shared hosting which we offer and it's accessible via our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. A little phpMyAdmin icon will be displayed on the right side of every database which you set up inside the MySQL Databases section of the Control Panel and by clicking on the icon for the database you want to access, you shall be logged into the app automatically in a new tab of your Internet browser. Then you can do everything you'd like - export the whole or a part of the data, import a database, run SQL queries, search and replace terms. If you do not want to go through the Control Panel, you shall also be able to log in via a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you should know the database username and password. The last function is handy if you have to grant access to a database to a third-party.
