What is phpPgAdmin? What job does it have in a Internet hosting account?
PhpPgAdmin is one of the most popular tools for controlling PostgreSQL databases. It's easy-to-use, yet powerful and you'll be able to perform any action you'd like - export, import or edit each cell, row or table in a database; grant, revoke or adjust the permissions for a given user; execute SQL queries and many more. If you want to have a backup copy of a PostgreSQL-driven site, for example, or relocate it to another website hosting provider, you are able to export the whole database in a format of your liking - SQL, CSV, XML, XHTML and so on. Using phpPgAdmin, you will have complete control over your databases and anything connected with them. The instrument was initially meant to be the PostgreSQL alternative of phpMyAdmin, but today the two have little in common when it comes to the user interface.
phpPgAdmin in Shared Hosting
In case the shared hosting that you select works with PostgreSQL databases by default or you add them as an upgrade, you will be able to employ phpPgAdmin to control them. The software tool can be accessed through the PostgreSQL part of our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and it will take a click to log in to each of your databases. This happens instantly in a separate tab of your browser, but if you would like to grant access to a database to a third user, you are able to give them the login credentials for that particular database and they will be able to use the direct phpPgAdmin login page. This way, a web designer or a service IT person can work on a particular site without accessing any other thing inside your shared website hosting account - files, email messages, personal details, etcetera.
