phpMyAdmin is a highly efficient PHP-based tool used to handle MySQL databases through a web interface. You may employ it to run MySQL commands, set up, modify and remove cells, rows and tables or handle users with various levels of access to the database in question. All these tasks may be performed from any device provided that you have a web browser and access to the website hosting account in which the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you could also export or import a whole database, which is a very beneficial function if you would like to migrate a website from one hosting provider to another. Several different file formats are supported for the so-called dump file - CSV, SQL, XML and PDF, dependant upon what you need to do - move the content from one hosting account to another, preview an entire database in a spreadsheet app such as Microsoft Excel, etc.
