PhpPgAdmin is among the most popular instruments for managing PostgreSQL databases. It is user-friendly, at the same time powerful and you are able to execute any action you need - export, import or edit each cell, row or table within a database; grant, revoke or modify the permissions of a particular user; execute SQL queries and many other things. When you need to have a backup of a PostgreSQL-driven site, for example, or transfer it to an alternative hosting supplier, you are able to export your whole database in a format that you choose - SQL, CSV, XML, XHTML and many others. With phpPgAdmin, you'll have full control over your databases and all things connected with them. The tool was originally meant to be the PostgreSQL alternative of phpMyAdmin, however today the two have very little in common when it comes to the user interface.
phpPgAdmin in Hosting
If the hosting that you pick works with PostgreSQL databases by default or you install them as an upgrade, you will be able to use phpPgAdmin to manage them. The tool can be accessed through the PostgreSQL part of our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and it takes only a click to log in to any of your databases. This happens automatically in a separate tab of your browser, but in case you need to grant access to a database to another person, you can provide them with 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 company IT person will be able to work on a certain site without accessing anything else in your shared hosting account - files, email messages, private info, etc.
