What is phpPgAdmin? What job does it have inside a web hosting account?
PhpPgAdmin is one of the most popular tools for controlling PostgreSQL databases. It's intuitive, yet powerful and you can perform any action you want to - import, export and / or modify every cell, row or table within a database; grant, revoke or modify the permissions of a particular user; execute SQL queries and many more. If you need to have a backup of a PostgreSQL-driven site, for instance, or relocate it to some other website hosting provider, you can export your whole database in a format of your choice - SQL, CSV, XML, XHTML and so on. Using phpPgAdmin, you will have complete control of your databases and everything linked to them. The tool was in fact intended as the PostgreSQL alternative of phpMyAdmin, but today they have little in common when it comes to the user interface.
phpPgAdmin in Cloud Web Hosting
If the Linux cloud web hosting that you choose supports PostgreSQL databases as standard or you obtain them as an upgrade, you'll be able to use phpPgAdmin to manage them. The application can be used from the PostgreSQL area of our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and it will take only a click to sign in to each of your databases. This happens automatically in a new tab of your web browser, and if you wish to grant access to a database to a third individual, you can give them the login credentials for the particular database and they'll be able to use our direct phpPgAdmin login page. In this way, a graphic designer or a service IT person will be able to work on a given website without accessing any other thing within your shared website hosting account - files, email messages, personal information, etcetera.
