InnoDB is a popular database engine for MySQL. It’s an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has a number of pluses which have made it the preferred engine for a lot of PHP-based software apps, among them Joomla™ and Magento, which have moved to InnoDB permanently. For example, adding large amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, because it locks only a single database row to execute a particular operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is handled. Put simply, adding new or modifying existing data will either be fully completed, or will be aborted and the procedure will be rolled back in case some issue occurs during the process, which means that the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
Every PHP script-powered web app that requires InnoDB will function impeccably on our innovative cloud platform and the MySQL storage engine comes with all our cloud hosting
packages. Every time you create a MySQL database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation process is initiated, the engine that the database will use will be selected based on the app’s requirements without having to edit any setting in your shared account. InnoDB will be picked automatically for any app that requires this specific engine and you’ll be able to make the most of its full capacity. We’ll keep regular content backups, so in case you unintentionally erase a database that’s important to you or you overwrite specific parts of it, we’ll be able to restore your database the way it was only several hours earlier.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
InnoDB is included with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
by default, so once you buy a new semi-dedicated account, you can go on and install any script-driven app that requires this database engine. Several engines are pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so when you create a new database and begin installing an application manually, or decide to make use of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated app installer tool, the engine for the database will be set based on the requirements of the specific application. This will permit you to activate and run InnoDB-specific applications without coming across any obstacle and without having to change any settings in your account. To take no chances, we will always keep a 7-day-old backup of all your databases, so if you delete or alter any content unintentionally, we can quickly retrieve it.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting
InnoDB is included as standard with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages
that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It is an integral part of the software bundle that will be installed on all Hepsia-managed servers, so once your physical machine is set up, you will be able to log in and to activate any type of PHP-driven application that requires this particular database storage engine. When you set up a new MySQL database via the Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine until you start installing an application. As soon as the app configuration wizard begins inserting information into the newly created database, the engine will be set automatically depending on the given app’s prerequisites, so you can use both InnoDB and MyISAM without the need to select either one explicitly at any moment. In this way, you can use an extensive variety of apps for your Internet sites.
