Discover more about what phpMyAdmin is and the best way to make use of it as an administrative tool for your MySQL databases.
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool developed in PHP, which will present you with complete control of a MySQL database. You could do virtually everything - set up fields, rows and tables, erase them or change their content, export or import an entire database or just a particular part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is vital if you would like to switch hosting companies, because you may effortlessly create a full backup of a database in different formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You'll end up with only one file that contains the whole content of the database, so you could download it from the current 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, due to the fact that all script apps store their content in a database. With phpMyAdmin you may also easily search and replace content material of your choosing across the entire website - a word, a phrase or a link, for instance.
