    • Restore Database
    • phpMyAdmin

Restore Database

Clicking the 'Restore Database' link opens the restore MySQL database page in the panel. On this page you can view your database settings and restore your database as needed. For more information, please see the following article:

phpMyAdmin

The following page opens when you click the 'phpMyAdmin' link:

phpmyadmin_managing_mysql

You can make changes to your DreamPress MySQL database directly in phpMyAdmin, regardless of whether the domain's DNS is pointed to DreamHost. phpMyAdmin is particularly helpful with backing up, importing, exporting, and restoring a database.

For more information on phpMyAdmin, see the links in the following section.
