phpMyAdmin is an efficient PHP-based software tool which is used to manage MySQL databases through a web interface. You can use it to run MySQL commands, set up, modify and delete cells, rows and tables or handle users with separate levels of access to the database in question. Every single one of these tasks can be performed from any device as long as you have a browser and access to the hosting account where the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you can also export or import a whole database, which is a very helpful function if you need to migrate an Internet site from one web hosting provider to another. Several different file formats are supported for the so-called dump file - CSV, SQL, XML and PDF, based upon what you want to do - move the content from one hosting account to another, preview an entire database in a spreadsheet application for instance Microsoft Excel, etc.
phpMyAdmin in Shared Hosting
phpMyAdmin is part of each shared plan that we provide and it's accessible from our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel. A little phpMyAdmin icon will be shown on the right side of each database which you create in the MySQL Databases section of the CP and by clicking on the icon for the database which you want to access, you'll be logged into the application automatically in a new tab of your web browser. Then you can do anything you'd like - export the entire or a part of the data, import a database, run SQL queries, search and modify terms. If you don't want to use the CP, you shall also be able to log in through a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you ought to know the database account information. The last feature is handy if you have to give access to a database to a third-party.
