What's phpPgAdmin? What function does it have in a web hosting account?
PhpPgAdmin is an advanced level, albeit user-friendly software tool, which provides you with complete control over your PostgreSQL databases. It's comparable to phpMyAdmin and you are able to use it to modify all of the content in a PostgreSQL database, to import or export the entire database or just specific cells, rows and tables, and to modify the permissions that a specific database user has. As phpPgAdmin supports a number of file formats (CSV, SQL, XML), you'll be able to use it to transfer a website from one hosting provider to another and even view the database content using any spreadsheet app on your personal computer. Even though there're other applications which you could employ online to control PostgreSQL databases with web interface too, phpPgAdmin is undoubtedly the most widespread one because it's convenient and offers a lot of features.
phpPgAdmin in Cloud Web Hosting
In case the Linux cloud web hosting that you pick supports PostgreSQL databases by default or you add them as an upgrade, you can employ phpPgAdmin to control them. The software tool is accessible from the PostgreSQL area of our custom-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and it takes just a mouse-click to log in to each of your databases. This happens instantly in a new tab of your browser, and if you would like to give access to a database to a third person, you can provide them with the login credentials for that specific database and they can use the direct phpPgAdmin login page. Thus, a web designer or a company IT person can work on a particular site without accessing anything else part of your shared hosting account - files, e-mails, private details, etcetera.
