phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, which shall offer you 100 % control of a MySQL database. You could do literally everything - set up fields, rows and tables, delete them or change their data, export or import an entire database or only a particular part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is vital when you would like to switch web hosting companies, simply because you can easily generate a full backup of a database in different formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You shall end up with just one file containing the entire content of the database, so you can download it from the present provider, upload it to the server of the new one and import it using the same tool on their end. Your site shall look exactly the same, simply because all script apps store their data within a database. With phpMyAdmin you may also conveniently search and replace information of your preference across the entire website - a word, a phrase or a link, for instance.

phpMyAdmin in Shared Hosting

phpMyAdmin is a part of each and every shared plan that we provide and it's accessible from our tailor-made Hepsia CP. A tiny phpMyAdmin icon will be displayed on the right side of any database that you set up in the MySQL Databases section of the Control Panel and by clicking on the icon for the database that you want to access, you'll be logged into the application automatically in a new tab of your browser. Then you can do anything you'd like - export the entire or part of the content, import a database, run SQL queries, search and modify terms. If you don't want to go through the Control Panel, you'll also be able to log in via a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you should know the database username and password. The last feature is handy if you have to grant access to a database to a third-party.
