If you’ve run WordPress for any length of time, you’re no doubt familiar with phpMyAdmin. Access to phpMyAdmin can often be critical to your WordPress operation and debugging needs, and thankfully WP Engine makes this very easy.
Unlike some web hosts which hide phpMyAdmin, or put it behind an additional (and unknown) password – phpMyAdmin at WPEngine is accessible via one-click inside their customer portal.
Steps to Access phpMyAdmin at WP Engine
- Login to the WPEngine Customer Portal.
- Click PHPMyAdmin in the sidebar menu.
- That’s it!
phpMyAdmin will launch in a new tab, and you’ll have direct access to both the staging, and live databases.
Make sure to run a full backup before making any direct changes to your database.
