What is PHPMyAdmin?

The administration of a MySQL database throughout the internet is managed by a tool written in PHP called PHPMyAdmin.  The database itself is first set up in cPanel, but PHPMyAdmin manages its functions.  For example, PHPMyAdmin can create and alter databases. You can use it to add, edit, delete fields, drop entire databases, run SQL statements or even transmit information into different formats and administer keys. Basically, any table command you would run from the shell at the mysql prompt can be accomplished here in this graphical user interface.

How Do I Access PHPMyAdmin?

To find PHPMyAdmin on your cPanel, login and go to Home > Databases > PHPMyAdmin.
