What's phpPgAdmin? What function does it have in a hosting account?
PhpPgAdmin is one of the most popular tools for managing PostgreSQL databases. It's user-friendly, at the same time powerful and you can execute any action you'd like - import, export and update each cell, row or table in a database; grant, revoke or adjust the permissions for a particular user; execute SQL queries and many other things. If you need to have a backup copy of a PostgreSQL-driven site, for example, or relocate it to an alternative web hosting provider, you can export your entire database in a format that you choose - SQL, CSV, XML, XHTML and so on. Using phpPgAdmin, you will have complete control of your databases and everything connected with them. The instrument was initially meant to be the PostgreSQL equivalent of phpMyAdmin, however these days they have little in common when it comes to the interface.
phpPgAdmin in Shared Hosting
If the shared plan
that you pick supports PostgreSQL databases as standard or you install them as an upgrade, you'll be able to use phpPgAdmin to control them. The tool can be used through the PostgreSQL part of our in-house made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and it takes only a click to log in to each of your databases. This will happen automatically in a new tab of your Internet browser, but if you would like to give access to a database to another individual, you are able to provide them with the login credentials for that specific database and they can use our direct phpPgAdmin login page. This way, a graphic designer or a company IT person can work on a certain site without accessing anything else inside your shared hosting account - files, e-mail messages, personal details, etcetera.
phpPgAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
We supply phpPgAdmin with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans
and you can use it to take care of any PostgreSQL database that you create through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. As soon as you make a new database, a phpPgAdmin button will appear beside it, so with just a click you are able to sign in to the application and see the content of that particular database. You will not have to enter any username or password as long as you sign in through your website hosting account, still if you'd like to sign in manually or to give accessibility to a database to some other person, you will also have the option to do that. This way, if you manage the account and the company IT person controls the website content, for example, he will be able to work on the site without having access to any email messages or other confidential data.
