Using phpMyAdmin to Manage MySQL Databases
phpMyAdmin lets you view and modify a database. You can change database values, run queries, and create, view and modify your database structure. Go to the Control Panel in your hosting account to access phpMyAdmin.
NOTE: Programs like WordPress® and Joomla® provide their own Web interface for modifying a database. If you are using one of these programs, you probably don't need to use phpMyAdmin to manage the database unless you are an advanced user.
You should always make a backup of your database before using phpMyAdmin to make changes. For more information about backing up your database, see Backing up and Restoring MySQL or MSSQL Databases.
To Manage Your Databases Using phpMyAdmin
- Log in to your Account Manager.
- Click Web Hosting.
- Next to the hosting account you want to use, click Launch.
- In the Databases section of the Control Panel in your hosting account, click MySQL.
- Click phpMyAdmin for the database you want to manage with phpMyAdmin.
- Enter your user name and password. The user name is the same as the database name.
TIP: If you don't know your password, see Resetting Your MySQL Database Password for information about changing it.
- Click Go.
