phpMyAdmin is a powerful PHP-based software tool employed to handle MySQL databases through a web interface. You may use it to run MySQL commands, set up, edit and remove cells, rows and tables or manage users with different levels of access to the database in question. These tasks can easily be carried out from any device provided that you have a browser and access to the web hosting account in which the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you may also export or import an entire database, which is a very beneficial feature if you want to migrate a web site from one web hosting provider to another. A variety of file formats are supported for the so-called dump file - CSV, SQL, XML and PDF, dependant upon what you want to do - move the content from one web hosting account to another, preview a whole database in a spreadsheet app such as Microsoft Excel, and so forth.
