InnoDB is a very popular database engine for MySQL. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got a number of strengths which make it the preferred engine for many PHP script-based web apps, among them Joomla™ and Magento, which have moved to InnoDB for good. For instance, adding huge volumes of data will be faster with InnoDB, because it locks only one row to carry out a certain operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is tackled. To put it simply, importing new or modifying existing data will either be fully completed, or will be annulled and the operation will be rolled back if a given problem shows up in the meantime, which is why the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.
InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting
Any open-source script-powered software application that needs InnoDB will run flawlessly on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform and the storage engine comes with all our cloud website hosting
packages. Each time you create a database manually or our app installer tool creates one automatically and an app installation is initiated, the engine that the database will make use of will be selected in accordance with the app’s requirements without the need to change any setting in your hosting account. InnoDB will be picked automatically for any app that requires this specific engine and you will be able to take advantage of its full capacity. We will create regular content backups, so in case you unintentionally delete a database that is important to you or you overwrite a specific part of it, we’ll be able to restore your database the way it was only several hours ago.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you create a brand-new MySQL database from the Control Panel coming with all our semi-dedicated server
packages and you begin installing a PHP script-based web application either manually or using our 1-click app installer tool, the database storage engine will be selected automatically based on the prerequisites of the specific app. As InnoDB is available on the cloud web hosting platform where your new account will be set up, it will be set as the default engine for each app that needs it without any manual intervention required on your end at any time. To prevent any chance of losing info if you update an application or if you remove a database by mistake, we’ll make a backup of all your databases each and every day, so if anything happens, we can retrieve your data.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
When you acquire a VPS server
from us, you’ll be able to use our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel to manage your content. A Hepsia-managed Virtual Private Server will permit you to activate any open-source script-driven application that requires InnoDB, as this particular MySQL storage engine is an integral part of the software package that will be installed on the Virtual Private Server during its configuration. When you set up a brand new database using the hosting Control Panel, you’ll simply need to begin installing an app – manually or using our app installer tool. InnoDB will be set as the default engine on the condition that the application in question requires it, so you won’t have to do anything else in your VPS account. Similarly, if a certain application needs MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this specific MySQL database.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
InnoDB comes as standard with all dedicated servers
that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It’s part of the default software bundle that we install on all Hepsia-managed servers, so as soon as your physical machine is up and running, you’ll be able to log in and to activate any script-driven software app that needs this particular MySQL storage engine. If you set up a new MySQL database through the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine till you begin installing an application. As soon as the app activation wizard starts importing data into the newly created database, the engine will be set automatically on the basis of the prerequisites of the given application, so you can use both InnoDB and MyISAM without selecting either of them specifically at any point. In this way, you can make use of a broad range of applications for your websites.
