phpMyAdmin is an efficient PHP-based software tool used to handle MySQL databases via a web interface. You can use it to run MySQL commands, create, modify and erase cells, rows and tables or handle users with separate levels of access to the database in question. These tasks may be completed from any device provided that you have a web browser and access to the web hosting account in which the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you may also export or import a whole database, which is a very useful function if you need to migrate an Internet site from one web hosting company to another. Many 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 data from one hosting account to another, preview an entire database in a spreadsheet app such as Microsoft Excel, and so on.
