How to migrate databases on your panel
📽️ Video Guide 📽️
This article intends to teach you on how to import and export a database of yours that you're looking to move to another provider/here in WitherHosting! The import process is rather simple, so let's get right into it.
🔓 Accessing the phpmyadmin interface 🔓
On your database page, you'll see an icon that looks like a database. Simply click on that icon, and you'll be logged into PHPMyAdmin! Here, you can manage your database rows, tables, etc. and even import and export databases! See our migration guide for more.
📤 Exporting your database 📤
Once you're in, click on the database that you want to export at the left-hand side. Then, click the export button at the top. Proceed to choose quick export method and click "go" to get a .sql file of your database downloaded to your computer. You can choose custom if you want to have all your databases' sql files at once.
📩 Importing your database 📩
First, click on the database you want to import to at the left-hand side. If you have a .sql file you want to import to your database, use the import function, choose the file from your computer ( 64mb max ) and then import it to your server! The import will be complete.
Additionally, you can paste a list of SQL commands to run in order to import your data if that's what you prefer.
And you're done! You've sucesfully migrated a database on your panel. This guide applies for any other host information. Make sure they have a phpmyadmin website, or use HeidiSQL instead to get a backup of your database to import with us!
