Previously, on our site, that was built with Drupal Version 7.5 (I think), I could look at the Mysql database upon which my site was built with PhpMyAdmin, which I could access through CPanel.
I was able to query and even update the database with PhpMyAdmin. The most common query I made was to count the number of times a given page ('node' with query key field being 'nid') had been read.
Now that the site has been transformed from Drupal into a Backdrop site, I don't know how to find that information with Backdrop, other than to look at the read count on that page or else on an introduction along with other page introductions on my browser.
Could someone advise if, and how, I can do this with Backdrop? Do I need to install a non-core module in order to accomplish this?
Thank you for reading this.
I think that @Oadeh meant that it works the same as in Drupal 7. I don't think that there is anything in the core package of Drupal 7 that will allow you to do the above.
If you ran database queries with PHPMyAdmin in Drupal 7, you can do the same with BackdropCMS.
It is possible that you were using a contributed module in Drupal 7 and it is possible that the specific module you mentioned is not available for Backdrop, but it may be possible to port that module.
Here are some modules for Backdrop that MIGHT help you?
