InnoDB is a very popular database storage engine for the MySQL DBMS. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got numerous strong sides which make it the engine of choice for numerous PHP script-driven web applications, including Magento and Joomla, which have switched to InnoDB permanently. For instance, adding enormous amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, since it locks only a single row to perform a particular operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is treated. Simply put, importing new or modifying existing data will either be entirely completed, or will be canceled and the operation will be rolled back in case a given problem occurs in the meantime, which is why the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.
InnoDB in Website Hosting
Any PHP-powered software application that needs InnoDB will function flawlessly on our innovative cloud website hosting platform and the database engine is offered with all our website hosting plans. Whenever you create a MySQL database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation is started, the engine that the database will use will be selected in accordance with the app’s specifications without the need to update any setting in your shared account. InnoDB will be picked automatically for any application that requires this particular engine and you’ll be able to get the most out of its full capacity. We will keep regular backups of your content, so in case you accidentally delete a database that is important to you or you overwrite some part of it, we’ll be able to restore your data the way it was just several hours ago.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can run a PHP-powered software application that needs InnoDB with any of our semi-dedicated server packages, as all the accounts are set up on our innovative cloud platform where the MySQL database engine is installed. A new database can be set up in two separate ways – manually from the Database Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, or automatically – if you make use of our one-click application installer. In either case, the needed engine will be selected automatically once the installation of the app starts, so you won’t need to change anything manually, irrespective of whether the app needs InnoDB or the more widely used MyISAM. Also, we’ll always be able to restore any of your databases in case you accidentally remove one, as we generate a few backups every day, each of which is preserved for 7 days.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is one of the features that you can pick on the order page when you purchase a dedicated server from us. Since this is the most powerful type of hosting, it is very likely that you’ll run very popular Internet sites that will attract a lot of individuals, and since InnoDB is one of the very best options for such websites, we will install it together with all the other software apps that are available with a Hepsia-managed server. If you create a brand-new MySQL database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any activated database engine till you start installing an open-source PHP script, whether manually via your browser or using the automatic script installation tool that is integrated into the hosting Control Panel. The needed engine will be automatically detected and will be set for the database in question, so you can install scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, without the need to deal with any difficulty.
