phpMyAdmin is a highly efficient PHP-based tool employed to handle MySQL databases through a web interface. You could employ it to run MySQL commands, create, change and delete cells, rows and tables or handle users with various levels of access to the database in question. Each one of these tasks may be carried out from any device given that you have an Internet browser and access to the website hosting account where the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you could also export or import an entire database, which is a very useful function if you'd like to migrate an Internet site from one hosting provider to another. A variety of file formats are supported for the so-called dump file - CSV, SQL, XML and PDF, depending on what you'd like to do - move the data from one hosting account to another, preview a whole database in a spreadsheet application such as Microsoft Excel, etc.
