Learn just what phpPgAdmin stands for and for what purpose it’s found in a hosting account.
PhpPgAdmin is a highly developed, at the same time user-friendly software tool, which will provide you with complete control of all of your PostgreSQL databases. It's comparable to phpMyAdmin and you can use it to edit all of the content within a PostgreSQL database, to import or export the whole database or just particular cells, rows and tables, and to customise the permissions that a database user has. As phpPgAdmin supports a variety of file formats (CSV, SQL, XML), you're able to employ it to move a website from one website hosting service provider to a different one or even see the database content with any spreadsheet application on your computer. Even though there're other apps which you can use online to take care of PostgreSQL databases using web interface as well, phpPgAdmin has become undoubtedly the most popular one because it's convenient and comes with a lot of features.
phpPgAdmin in Shared Website Hosting
If the Linux shared website hosting
that you pick supports PostgreSQL databases by default or you add them as an upgrade, you will be able to use phpPgAdmin to control them. The instrument is accessible from the PostgreSQL area of our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and it takes just a single click to sign in to any of your databases. This will happen instantly in a separate tab of your web browser, and in case you wish to allow access to a database to a third person, you are able to give them the login credentials for that specific database and they will be able to use the direct phpPgAdmin login page. This way, a web designer or a service IT person will work on a certain website without accessing anything else in your shared website hosting account - files, emails, private details, etc.
phpPgAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can access and use phpPgAdmin to control each database with only a couple of clicks in case you host your sites using a semi-dedicated server
package from our company. When you go to the PostgreSQL area of our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel, you will see a little phpPgAdmin button beside each and every database that you have set up. When you click on the button for a selected database, you'll be signed in automatically, so you will not need to type in any other login credentials. Since you may employ the services of a web designer, however, we've also included an option to access phpPgAdmin manually through a direct login page in which the database username and password has to be entered. This way, the designer will not be able to access your files or view your private contact information.
