phpMyAdmin is a web based tool that we usually used for the purpose of managing and administering the MariaDB & MySQL databases. phpMyAdmin is available in the form of open source application software programmed and built using the PHP scripting language, instigated by the Microsoft tool ‘MySQL –WebAdmin’. This tool is exerted for employing more than one database system or database management systems, along with their connected servers and node units. It was originally developed by Tobias Ratschiller, and later ended up with GitHub.
Due to PHP’s different setting limitations often the end-user was unable to import or export large databases using phpMyAdmin eg. file upload limit’s limitations, request time out settings, etc.
But database administration can be done without phpMyAdmin using various 3rd party software.
We will discuss here how to import and export a large database using MYSQL workbench from a shared cPanel hosting account.
