phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, which shall present you with complete control of a MySQL database. You may do literally everything - set up fields, rows and tables, remove them or change their content, export or import an entire database or only a specific part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is vital if you need to switch hosting companies, because you could conveniently create a full backup of a database in several formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You'll end up with a single file that contains the whole content of the database, so you could download it from the present provider, upload it to the hosting server of the new one and import it using the same tool on their end. Your site will look exactly the same, due to the fact that all script applications store their content in a database. With phpMyAdmin you may also easily search and replace content of your choice across the entire website - a word, an expression or a link, for example.
phpMyAdmin in Web Hosting
phpMyAdmin is a part of every web hosting plan which we provide and it is accessible from our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. A little phpMyAdmin icon will be shown on the right side of each database which you set up inside the MySQL Databases section of the Control Panel and by clicking on the icon for the database that you want to access, you will be logged into the app immediately in a new tab of your web browser. Then you can do everything you'd like - export the entire or part of the content, import a database, run SQL queries, search and change terms. If you don't want to go through the CP, you'll also be able to sign in using a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you ought to know the database username and password. The last feature is handy if you have to grant access to a database to a third-party.
