What is phpPgAdmin? What function does it have inside your web hosting account?
PhpPgAdmin is an advanced level, albeit user-friendly software tool, which provides you with complete control over all of your PostgreSQL databases. It is similar to phpMyAdmin and you are able to use it to modify any content in a PostgreSQL database, to import or export the database or just specific cells, rows and tables, and to modify the permissions that a database user has. As phpPgAdmin works with different file formats (CSV, SQL, XML), you can employ it to transfer a site from one web hosting provider to another and even see the database content using any spreadsheet app on your computer. Though there're other applications that you can use online to manage PostgreSQL databases using web interface as well, phpPgAdmin has become undoubtedly the most popular one since it is simple to use and offers plenty of features.
phpPgAdmin in Shared Hosting
PhpPgAdmin is one of the tools you'll be able to access from the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with each shared hosting
we provide. Every time you make a PostgreSQL database in the Databases area of your account, a phpPgAdmin icon shows up close to it, so that you can simply click on it and you'll be signed into the app right away. You won't need to enter any login credentials as long as you go through the Control Panel, still if you want to allow access to a specific database to another person, they're able to use a direct phpPgAdmin login link where they can enter the username and the password which you give them and work on the database without having access to another content in your hosting account. This option is useful when you hire a graphic designer to set up or enhance your website.
phpPgAdmin in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to access and use phpPgAdmin in order to take care of any database with just a few mouse-clicks in case you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server
package from our company. When you go to the PostgreSQL part of our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel, you'll discover a little phpPgAdmin button next to each and every database that you've set up. Once you click on this button for a particular database, you will be logged in automatically, so you won't need to type in any other login details. Since you may use the services of a graphic designer, however, we have also supplied an alternative to get into phpPgAdmin manually via a direct login page in which the database account information has to be entered. Thus, the designer won't be able to access your files or see your personal contact info.
