InnoDB is a very popular database storage engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got plenty of advantages which have made it the preferred engine for a lot of open-source script-powered software apps, among them Magento and Joomla, which have switched over to InnoDB for good. For instance, adding huge volumes of data will be much faster with InnoDB, as it locks only a single database row to complete an operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable applications. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is treated. Simply put, importing new or updating existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be aborted and the operation will be rolled back if some problem occurs during the process, therefore the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.
InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting
Every PHP-driven app that needs InnoDB will function flawlessly on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform and the storage engine comes with all our cloud web hosting plans. Whenever you create a MySQL 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 based on the app’s prerequisites without the need to edit any setting in your shared account. InnoDB will be chosen automatically for any application that requires this particular engine and you’ll be able to get the most out of its full potential. We’ll store regular content backups, so if you unintentionally erase a database that you need or you overwrite a specific part of it, we will be able to restore the database the way it was only several hours earlier.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated servers support InnoDB and you can use all the features offered by this MySQL storage engine with any open-source script-based application that requires it. It’s among the engines that we have on our cloud website hosting platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the requirements of the app in question. You will not have to do anything manually in order to activate InnoDB, because it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an application – whether manually or using our one-click application installer. To avoid any risk, we’ll generate daily database backups, so if something goes wrong following an upgrade or if you remove some content by mistake, we’ll be able to restore your database the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
If you order a VPS server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, the InnoDB storage engine will be included in the standard software bundle that will be installed on your server before we give it to you. You won’t have to configure anything manually and you’ll be able to install and use any open-source script-driven application that requires InnoDB when your VPS server is up and running, which takes no more than 1 hour after the order process itself. A few engines are available, so anytime you set up a database via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, a particular engine will be selected once the app installation process begins and our system will automatically detect which engine is required by the application in question. In case you have to use MyISAM, for instance, you will not have to do anything different than installing the chosen app, whether manually or using our app installer.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
InnoDB is included by default with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It is an integral part of the standard software package that we install on all Hepsia-equipped dedicated servers, so once your machine is set up, you will be able to sign in and to activate any kind of open-source script-based web app that needs this MySQL database engine. If you create a new MySQL database through the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine until you begin installing an app. As soon as the app setup wizard starts inserting data into the database, the engine will be set automatically based on the respective app’s requirements, so you can use both MyISAM and InnoDB without the need to select either one specifically at any time. Thus, you can use a broad selection of applications for your sites.
