phpMyAdmin is a powerful PHP-based tool used to control MySQL databases via a web interface. You can use it to run MySQL commands, create, edit and erase cells, rows and tables or manage users with separate levels of access to the database in question. Every one of these tasks may be done from any device given that you have a web browser and access to the website hosting account where the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you could also export or import a whole database, which is a very helpful feature if you would like to migrate a website from one web hosting provider to another. A variety of file formats are supported for the so-called dump file - CSV, SQL, XML and PDF, dependant upon what you would like to do - move the content from one web hosting account to another, preview an entire database in a spreadsheet app like Microsoft Excel, etc.
phpMyAdmin in Cloud Hosting
phpMyAdmin is part of each cloud hosting that we offer and it's accessible via our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel. A tiny phpMyAdmin icon will be shown on the right side of each database you create in the MySQL Databases section of the Control Panel and by clicking on the icon for the database which you want to access, you will be logged into the application immediately 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 use the Control Panel, you will also be able to sign in using a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you should know the database username and password. The last function is helpful if you have to grant access to a database to a third-party.
