phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, which shall give you total control over a MySQL database. You can do virtually everything - create fields, rows and tables, delete them or modify their data, export or import a whole database or only a specific part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is irreplaceable if you want to switch hosting providers, simply because you could effortlessly generate a full backup of a database in several formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You'll end up with a single file containing the whole content of the database, so you can easily download it from the current provider, upload it to the web server of the new one and import it using the same tool on their end. Your website will look exactly the same, simply because all script apps store their data in a database. With phpMyAdmin you can also effortlessly search and replace content material of your preference across the entire website - a word, an expression or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Web Hosting
phpMyAdmin is a part of each Linux web hosting which we provide and it is accessible from our in-house made Hepsia CP. A little phpMyAdmin icon shall be shown on the right side of every database that you create inside the MySQL Databases section of the Control Panel and by clicking on the icon for the database you want to access, you'll be logged into the app automatically in a new tab of your browser. Then you can do everything you'd like - export the entire or a part of the data, 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 sign 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.
