phpMyAdmin is a highly efficient PHP-based software tool employed to control MySQL databases using a web interface. You can employ it to run MySQL commands, create, modify and delete cells, rows and tables or handle users with separate levels of access to the database in question. Each one of these tasks can be completed from any device given that you have an Internet browser and access to the hosting account in which the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you may also export or import a whole database, which is a very helpful feature if you would like to migrate an Internet site from one web hosting company 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 need to do - move the data from one hosting account to another, preview a whole database in a spreadsheet application for example Microsoft Excel, and so forth.
