phpMyAdmin is an efficient PHP-based tool used to manage MySQL databases via a web interface. You can use it to run MySQL commands, create, edit and remove cells, rows and tables or handle users with separate levels of access to the database in question. Every single one of these tasks can be performed from any device given that you have a browser and access to the hosting account where the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you may also export or import a whole database, which is an extremely helpful function if you'd like to migrate a website from one web 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 would like to do - move the data from one hosting account to another, preview a whole database in a spreadsheet application such as Microsoft Excel, and so on.
