phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool coded in PHP, which shall present you with complete control of a MySQL database. You could do practically anything - set up fields, rows and tables, erase them or alter their content, export or import an entire database or just a specific part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is vital when you need to switch hosting providers, simply because you can very easily create a full backup of a database in several formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You will end up with one file which contains the whole content of the database, so you can easily download it from the present provider, upload it to the server of the new one and import it through the same tool on their end. Your site will look exactly the same, for the reason that all script apps store their content within a database. With phpMyAdmin you could also easily search and replace content of your preference across the whole website - a word, a phrase or a link, for instance.
phpMyAdmin in Cloud Website Hosting
phpMyAdmin is part of each and every cloud website hosting that we provide and it is accessible through our custom-built Hepsia CP. A small phpMyAdmin icon will be shown on the right side of every database that you create 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 anything you would like - export the entire or a part of the data, import a database, run SQL queries, search and replace terms. If you do not want to go through the Control Panel, you shall also be able to log in using a direct phpMyAdmin login page, but you need to know the database account information. The last feature is beneficial if you have to provide access to a database to a third-party.
