phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, which shall give you full control of a MySQL database. You can do literally everything - create fields, rows and tables, erase them or change their content, export or import a whole database or just a certain part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is necessary in case you would like to switch web hosting providers, simply because you can conveniently generate a full backup of a database in a variety of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You will end up with just one file that contains the entire content of the database, so you may download it from the present 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, due to the fact that all script applications store their data inside a database. With phpMyAdmin you can also conveniently search and replace content of your choice across the entire web site - a word, an expression or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Web Hosting
phpMyAdmin is provided as a part of our web hosting and you shall be able to access it at any time from your Hepsia CP. All databases which you create inside the account will be listed in alphabetical order within the MySQL Databases section of the Control Panel and all it shall take to access any of them shall be to click on the little phpMyAdmin icon, that will be on the right side of every database. You won't need to enter any info, since you'll be logged in automatically in a new browser tab. If you'd like to sign in by hand and not going through the CP, you shall be able to do that via our direct phpMyAdmin login page where you'll have to input the database account information. This option is handy if you want to offer access to a particular database to a third party, for instance a web designer.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
phpMyAdmin is one of the software tools that come with all our semi-dedicated servers. You can log into it and handle any of your MySQL databases if you click on the phpMyAdmin icon on the right side of each and every database that you have created through your Hepsia hosting CP. You won't need to do anything else, since our system shall log you in automatically and you will be able to proceed with the tasks you need to do - import a database file from another service provider, modify some content, and so on. You could access a database by using the direct phpMyAdmin login page too, but in such a case you'll have to type in the correct account information. You may use this option if you hire a web developer, as they can work on your site without accessing your hosting Control Panel. In this way, all files and email messages which you have inside the account will be safe.
