InnoDB is a popular database engine for the MySQL DBMS. It’s an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has a lot of strong sides that make it the preferred engine for numerous script-driven web apps, including Magento and Joomla™, which have moved to InnoDB for good. For example, adding large volumes of data will be faster with InnoDB, since it locks only one database row to perform a specific task, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the information is treated. To put it simply, adding new or modifying existing data will either be fully completed, or will be annulled and the operation will be rolled back in case some problem occurs in the meantime, hence the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
While InnoDB is either not available or a paid upgrade with many hosting service providers, it is an integral part of the standard set of features offered with our cloud hosting
packages. If you’d like to use a PHP-driven app that requires InnoDB particularly, in order to be activated and to operate correctly, you will not encounter any problems because the storage engine is available on our custom-developed cloud Internet hosting platform. Irrespective of whether you set up a brand-new MySQL database and activate an application manually or make use of our single-click application installer tool, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our platform as the default engine if the particular app needs InnoDB rather than MyISAM. In addition to the remarkable database crash recovery that InnoDB offers, we also store daily backups of all databases, so we can easily restore any database in your shared hosting account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our Linux semi-dedicated service
include InnoDB and you’ll be able to make the most of all the options offered by this MySQL database storage engine with any PHP script-based web application that requires it. InnoDB is among the engines that are available on our cloud hosting platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the particular app’s requirements. You won’t need to do anything manually in order to activate InnoDB, as it will be set as the default engine when you install an application – whether manually or using our one-click application installer tool. To avoid any risk, we will create daily backups of all your databases, so if anything goes wrong following an upgrade or if you remove some data by accident, we’ll be able to get your database back to the way it was on any of the past 7 days.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
In case our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel is picked during the signup process for a new VPS servers
, InnoDB will be installed on the VPS server along with other required pieces of software, so you won’t have to do anything if you choose to manage open-source script-driven apps that need this MySQL storage engine. MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, will be installed too. You can create a new MySQL database and begin the app installation procedure manually or through our one-click installer. The system will automatically detect which engine the particular application requires and will set it for the specific MySQL database, so the installation process will proceed impeccably and the application can enter its content into that database. Therefore, you can run applications with different requirements concerning the MySQL engine without making any modifications on your Virtual Private Server.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
InnoDB is available by default with all Linux dedicated service
ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It is an integral part of the software bundle that we install on all Hepsia-managed dedicated servers, so once your physical machine is set up, you will be able to log in and to install any type of PHP script-driven app that requires this storage engine. If you set up a new MySQL database via the Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine until you begin installing an application. As soon as the app installation wizard begins importing information into the database, the engine will be chosen automatically on the basis of the prerequisites of the specific application, so you can run both InnoDB and MyISAM without the need to select either of them specifically at any time. Thus, you can use a vast variety of applications for your sites.
