Learn what phpMyAdmin is, just what it’s used for and the reason why you will need it for your sites.
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool written in PHP, that will offer you complete control over a MySQL database. You can do practically anything - create fields, rows and tables, delete them or alter their data, export or import a whole database or just a certain part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is necessary if you need to switch web hosting companies, due to the fact that you can effortlessly generate a full backup of a database in several formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You'll end up with just one file which contains the whole content of the database, so you can easily download it from the current provider, upload it to the web server of the new one and import it through the same tool on their end. Your internet site will look exactly the same, because all script applications store their content inside a database. With phpMyAdmin you may also quickly search and replace content material of your choice across the entire website - a word, an expression or a link, for example.
