Learn what phpMyAdmin is, what it’s used for and the reason why you will be needing it for your websites.
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool coded in PHP, that will give you total control over a MySQL database. You may do virtually anything - set up fields, rows and tables, remove them or alter their data, export or import a whole database or just a specific part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is necessary when you want to switch hosting companies, simply because you could conveniently create a full backup of a database in several formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You'll end up with one file that contains the whole content of the database, so you can easily download it from the present provider, upload it to the web server of the new one and import it through the same tool on their end. Your site will look exactly the same, simply because all script applications store their data inside a database. With phpMyAdmin you may also effortlessly search and replace information of your choice across the entire website - a word, a phrase or a link, for instance.

If you are signed into your web hosting account, you can click on the phpMyAdmin icon, that will be on the right-hand side of every database you've set up, and you'll be signed in immediately. As an alternative, you can also access a database directly by visiting our phpMyAdmin login page and typing in the corresponding account information. You shall have the exact same level of access in either case and you'll be able to execute all procedures the tool supports, so you can easily import, export or change any of your databases.
