What is phpMyAdmin? What is its purpose? Why will your sites require it?
phpMyAdmin is an advanced tool that shall enable you to manage MySQL databases. It's developed in PHP and offers an easy-to-use web interface to: create, delete or change database cells, rows and whole tables. Less experienced users can employ the software tool to import or export a database with a few mouse clicks in a number of formats - PDF, CSV, SQL and XML, and this is the fastest and the simplest way to transfer a script-driven site from one website hosting provider to another, due to the fact that almost all the content of this sort of a website is stored in a database, not in static files. More knowledgeable users can access numerous advanced functions which include running MySQL statements or handling the privileges of database users. phpMyAdmin is amongst the most widely used MySQL management systems out there.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Web Hosting
You will be able to employ phpMyAdmin to access any database you set up inside a shared web hosting
account bought through our company as we provide the tool by default with all of our hosting plans. When you log in to your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and create a new database inside the MySQL Databases section, a little phpMyAdmin icon will appear on its right-hand side. What it takes to log in instantly is to click on that icon and the tool shall open inside a new web browser tab, so that you can handle the database content. That's also how you could import a database in case you are moving your site from another service provider to our innovative cloud hosting platform. The other way to log in to a database is if you use our direct phpMyAdmin login URL, but you need to know the DB account information. This option will enable you to provide access to any database to other people, without giving them access to the entire hosting account.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server
package from our company, you'll be able to access phpMyAdmin to manage any MySQL database you create in your account through the Hepsia hosting CP. A new tab will open inside your browser the instant you click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a specific database and you'll be logged into the advanced tool automatically, so you'll not have to type in the database username or password. If you want to provide access to another person like a website designer, for instance, you can give them the database login details and they shall be able to log in from a direct link to phpMyAdmin, so they will never need access to your whole web hosting account. This option will allow you to keep your files and emails safe at all times.
