To access it, click on the phpMyAdmin link which is available under the section Databases.
There you can see the dashboard page of the phpMyAdmin.
On the left-hand side, you can see the list of databases by expanding it to see the table in each database. On the right side, it displays the general information of the Database server.
phpMyAdmin allows the user to interact with the database directly. At times, it makes you mess with the database directly. The major thing is, the options such as ‘Undo’ or ‘Undelete’ are not present in your database. So, we suggest you to be cautious when working with the database.
