What is phpPgAdmin? What role does it have in a hosting account?
PhpPgAdmin is among the most popular instruments for managing PostgreSQL databases. It's easy-to-use, yet powerful and you're able to perform any action you'd like - export, import and modify every cell, row or table within a database; grant, revoke or modify the permissions of a certain user; execute SQL queries and many more. If you want to have a backup copy of a PostgreSQL-driven website, for example, or relocate it to some other hosting provider, you're able to export the whole database in a format of your preference - SQL, CSV, XML, XHTML and many others. With phpPgAdmin, you'll have complete control of your databases and anything linked to them. The instrument was in fact meant to be the PostgreSQL equivalent of phpMyAdmin, however today they have little in common when it comes to the user interface.
phpPgAdmin in Cloud Hosting
In case the cloud hosting that you pick supports PostgreSQL databases by default or you install them as an upgrade, you will be able to use phpPgAdmin to control them. The tool can be accessed from the PostgreSQL section of our custom-build Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and it will take just a click to sign in to each of your databases. This happens instantly in a new tab of your Internet browser, but in case you would like to allow access to a database to a third user, you are able to provide them with the login details for that particular database and they can use the direct phpPgAdmin login page. This way, a web designer or a service IT person will work on a particular website without accessing anything else inside your shared hosting account - files, email messages, personal details, etcetera.
