phpMyAdmin is an efficient PHP-based software tool used to manage MySQL databases using a web interface. You can employ it to run MySQL commands, create, change and delete cells, rows and tables or control users with different levels of access to the database in question. Each one of these tasks may be completed from any device as long as you have a browser and access to the web hosting account where the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you can also export or import a whole database, which is an extremely helpful feature if you'd like to migrate an Internet site from one web hosting provider to another. A number of different file formats are supported for the so-called dump file - CSV, SQL, XML and PDF, based upon what you want to do - move the content from one hosting account to another, preview an entire database in a spreadsheet app such as Microsoft Excel, and so forth.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Hosting
phpMyAdmin is available as part of our Linux shared hosting service and you shall be able to access it at any time through your Hepsia Control Panel. All databases you create in the account shall be listed in alphabetical order inside the MySQL Databases section of the CP and all it shall take to access any of them will be to click on the little phpMyAdmin icon, that will be on the right side of each database. You'll not need to input any information, since you will be logged in automatically in a new browser tab. If you prefer to log in manually and not using the CP, you will be able to do that using our direct phpMyAdmin login page in which you shall have to enter the database username and password. This option is helpful if you have to offer access to a certain database to a third party, for instance a web designer.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you will be able to access phpMyAdmin to manage any MySQL database that you create inside your account via the Hepsia hosting CP. A new tab shall open in your browser as soon as you click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a specific database and you will be logged into the sophisticated tool automatically, so you'll not have to enter the database username or password. If you would like to provide access to another person like a website designer, for instance, you could give them the database login information and they will be able to log in from a direct link to phpMyAdmin, so they shall never need access to your entire internet hosting account. This option will allow you to keep your files and emails safe at all times.
