phpMyAdmin is a highly efficient PHP-based software tool which is used to handle MySQL databases via a web interface. You could use it to run MySQL commands, create, edit and erase cells, rows and tables or manage users with separate levels of access to the database in question. Every one of these tasks can be performed from any device provided that you have a web browser and access to the website hosting account where the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you may also export or import a whole database, which is a very useful feature if you'd like to migrate an Internet site from one hosting provider to another. A number of different file formats are supported for the so-called dump file - CSV, SQL, XML and PDF, dependant upon what you'd like to do - move the data from one web hosting account to another, preview a whole database in a spreadsheet app like Microsoft Excel, etc.
