Learn what phpMyAdmin is, precisely what it’s employed for and the reasons why you will need it for your websites.
phpMyAdmin is a feature-rich tool developed in PHP, which shall give you complete control of a MySQL database. You may do absolutely everything - create fields, rows and tables, delete them or change their content, export or import an entire database or only a specific part of it, and execute MySQL commands. The tool is necessary if you need to switch web hosting providers, since you can conveniently generate a full backup of a database in a number of formats (SQL, CSV, XML). You will end up with just one file that contains the whole content of the database, so you can download it from the present provider, upload it to the hosting server of the new one and import it via the same tool on their end. Your site shall look exactly the same, for the reason that all script apps store their content in a database. With phpMyAdmin you can also conveniently search and replace content of your choice across the whole website - a word, an expression or a link, for instance.
