phpMyAdmin is a highly efficient PHP-based tool employed to manage MySQL databases using a web interface. You may use it to run MySQL commands, create, change and delete cells, rows and tables or handle users with various levels of access to the database in question. Every single one of these tasks can be performed from any device provided that you have a browser and access to the web hosting account where the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you may also export or import a whole database, which is a very beneficial feature if you want to migrate a website from one web hosting company to another. Several different file formats are supported for the so-called dump file - CSV, SQL, XML and PDF, based on what you need to do - move the content from one internet hosting account to another, preview a whole database in a spreadsheet app for example Microsoft Excel, etc.
phpMyAdmin in Cloud Hosting
phpMyAdmin is a part of each and every Linux cloud hosting which we offer and it is accessible via our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel. A little phpMyAdmin icon shall be shown on the right side of any database which you set up inside the MySQL Databases section of the CP and by clicking on the icon for the database you want to access, you'll be logged into the app instantly in a new tab of your web browser. Then you can do everything you'd like - export the whole or part of the data, import a database, run SQL queries, search and change terms. If you do not want to go through the Control Panel, you'll also be able to sign in via a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you must know the database username and password. The last feature is beneficial if you have to grant access to a database to a third-party.
